Have you seen the murals yet?

November 17, 2017 November 2017 No Comments

If you haven’t already seen them the town’s eight murals are really worth a look. The production of the murals was arranged by Ventana who are to be warmly thanked for their initiative and then produced by local artists. The murals are at four local businesses: Thunderpants, P&K, Ohio Street shops and Neighbourhood coffee. Plus Te Kairanga, Ata Rangi, Margrain and Palliser vineyards.
The mural illustrated is at Neighbourhood coffee and produced by Lindie and Mike Sleyer, it’s entitled Kiwiana and is a real nostalgia piece. Lindie and Mike are responsible , among many other things, for the design and monthly layout the Star which you receive every month. Over time we have probably become a bit blasé about the quality of the layout produced every month, however visitors frequently comment on it.
Lindie and Mike’s company Dustysandlulu is one of the many Martinborough companies quietly producing high class products and services for clients all over New Zealand. In their case producing branding, illustrations, packaging, print and web design.
