UK artist Lucy McLauchlan was invited to New Zealand in April 2017 for the Paradox street art festival hosted by Tauranga Art Gallery and curated by Oi YOU! This short film by Matt Watkins documents behind the scenes of Lucy's process and environment while featuring the sounds of two unique New Zealand musicians; Fis (Oliver Peryman) & Rob Thorne (Ngāti Tumutumu) with "Front Ear", a collaborative track taken from their LP "Clear Stones" released on Subtext Recordings.
I've donated art work for a charity auction, linked to the Paradox show in Tauranga New Zealand and the Youth Street Art Exhibition initiative, please read on for more info.
"Paradox is kicking along well with huge visitor numbers continuing at the gallery (we will hit 19,000 today) with popular Live & Local events.
One of our key initiatives for the Live & Local strategy has been the Paradox Youth Art Auction.
In addition we wanted to run an auction to help out our neighbours in Edgecumbe who were recently hit by serious flooding and many of them have lost everything they own. "
