Renowned New Zealand artists take over Taupo this Labour Weekend, 22 – 25 October 2021. See Taupo’s town centre transformed as 5 walls are revived into marvelous murals.
Masked up and ready to paint. Due to current Covid-19 travel restrictions (and a broken ankle) a few of the 2021 artists have had to cancel their trip to Taupo this Labour Weekend. However Dr Suits, Tāne Lawless, Gemini, Milarky and Bode, will still be creating amazing new artwork in our Taupō town centre.
