Container Art

Post Date: 24 May 18       Category

Several Art students from Horowhenua College volunteered their time over the April/May school holidays to work on a community project “Transforming Taitoko/Levin”.

The concept was to use a shipping container as a base for artistic work by three of our top students.  Oliver Parrent, Nicky Elliot and Ashlyn Ashby worked over a 48 hour period with the master of murals, Auckland based mural artist, Jonny4Hire.  Jonny was also the artist who assisted our art students two years ago with the Horowhenua Adventure Park Mural.

The idea was to attract people towards the container, which would be staffed by council people who wanted Levin locals to have their say about the direction of Levin and town planning for the future.

The painted container looks stunning, vibrant, bold and stylistic in its portrayal of Levin/Taitoko. Make sure you take a look as its parked in the Levin Mall carpark, opposite New World.

Our students did an amazing job, thank you so much!
