Ā mātou kōrero ā Hapori

New Zealand Artist Poihakena Ngawati

An exciting new mural has been painted on the New World wall, running the length of the laneway to the south of the plaza. Following two public calls for artists in 2017, Poihakena Ngawati Ngati Hine (Poi) of Ngapuhi, Tainui was awarded the mural contract.

“I guess what inspires me as an artist and a designer is knowing my cultural heritage and where I come from and to also be proud to hand such mana down to the next generation.”

Poi has a Diploma in Media Arts and a Bachelors of Media Arts Degree with graphic design as his major. Poi naturally had skills in illustration and painting from a very young age. It wasn’t until he was 15 years old that he was introduced to a spray can. From there he integrated his skills with the pencil into the discipline of graffiti. You can check out some of his artwork on his Instagram page.
