Angel wings and elephants are two aspects of a mural being painted on a wall on The Strand opposite Starbucks.
Graphic designer Tara Fowler and local artist Millie Newitt have been commissioned by Downtown Tauranga to paint the mural.
Tara Fowler and Millie Newitt are hoping to get people interacting with art.
The artists hope the mural will bring more colour to the city,
“We’re painting wings and the idea behind it is so the public can come and interact with it.
If they stand in front of the wings, they then look like their own wings. We’re trying to get interaction between the public and art,” says Tara.
“Also, we want to get a lot of sharing involved so people can take a photo and upload it to Facebook, Instagram, or wherever, and get people spreading the word about art in the city.”
Tara says the idea for the mural come after her and Millie thought about things they liked and quirky ideas.
“We have spent about five or six hours on the mural so far and have about another five or six to go,” adds Tara.
“It’s been really nice being out on the street and interacting with the public, we’re getting lots of feedback.”
