Kaikohe mural

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:09 pm on 17 September 2013

A local in Kaikohe asked an artist to paint on her wall to stop the kids from tagging. Fast-forward a few months later, and the Kaikohe Mural Project has taken on a life of its own. The line-up on the wall at Marino Place now includes a whole host of residents and local identities, plus 30 panels of famous Northlanders being painted by the students at Northland College, thanks to an initiative by local businesses. Chris Wilkie is the artist who started all this. He's also the art teacher at Northland art college.
