The Painter of Paradise – Buildings on the Block are a special collection of 25 small pieces and mark the beginning of a completely new series. They are intricately designed and painted to a high level of detail. Each is created from reclaimed native timbers from once grand buildings that now are demolished, They are unique artworks and an accurate record of our iconic Auckland architectural heritage.
This series marks an exciting development for the ongoing Painter of Paradise Project as the pieces are three dimensional and a departure from the painted board format. Each piece will be individually numbered and signed by the Artist and form part of the wider collection of artworks documenting New Zealand architecture in its landscape.
