uses paint that cleans the air around it
Urban artists Janine and Charles Williams of The Most Dedicated crew have painted a new mural in central Auckland inspired by the Māori ancestor Hape.
It's part of a global campaign called Converse City Forests. Instead of using traditional spray paint, they used innovative paint that cleans the air and is the equivalent of planting 182 trees.
Janine, of Ngāti Whātua ki Kaipara and Ngāti Pāoa, says the art piece was inspired by the legend of Hape and connects the essence of staying true to yourself, embodying your roots and breaking down barriers.
