In February 2014 I was commissioned to paint a portrait of musician Tiki Taane on a 40ft shipping container on Queens Wharf on Auckland’s downtown waterfront. Click here to watch the timelapse video.
Tiki Taane’s new album “With Strings Attached: Alive & Orchestrated” features my painting of him on the front cover!
“With Strings Attached” comes out 31 January 2014. Pre-order your signed copy here
