Story telling..

Had a lot of fun reconnecting and researching this year. Telling stories which relate to the land, culture and identity of the people of NZ, also without coincidence many of the topics i've been touching base with are common across the globe.  Past, present and future. Deities, gods, myths, stories of the land, sea, sky, and universe.  What ever way we wish to relate to them or label them depending on our cultural upbringing and birth place.

Here's a few recent murals from the past 2 and a bit months.

'Rauhoto' - New Plymouth - The Birth Of Taranaki.
