Papamoa-based artist Kereama Taepa has been selected to develop a project for Maclean Park in Paraparaumu.
The Kapiti Coast District Council deputy mayor Janet Holborow says the council’s public art panel was impressed with the quality of Taepa’s concepts and their flexibility, so his motifs can be integrated into different areas of the park now and in any future cevelopment.
Four artists were asked to submit conceptual designs.
Taepa will work with the panel and representatives from local iwi over the coming months to develop his initial concepts into a detailed design.
Previous projects include public sculptures in Wellington and New Plymouth, toilet block screens and drinking fountains for Rotorua Lakes Council, and an ATM wrap design for ANZ bank.
