Graham Hoete - also known as Mr G - found international fame last year after painting two massive wall murals of the late Prince - in Sydney and in the musician's hometown in Minnesota.  Graham's also immortalized Kiwi sports stars like boxer Joseph Parker and basketballer Steven Adams,  Graham's one of three Maori artists nominated in this year's Arts and Entertainment category of the Matariki Awards.  As he tells Lynn Freeman, he's just finished a mural in Tauranga, transforming a local water tower into a giant work of art.
