Cabinet provides colourful canvas

A Chorus cabinet in Snells Beach will be the latest to get a facelift, funded by the Chorus Cabinet Art programme.

Samantha Lane, of Orewa, will be out painting her mural on a cabinet at 290 Mahurangi East Road over coming months.

Her design features a fun illustration of native godwits, dotterels and oystercatchers skateboarding at a local park.

Chorus’ programme works with local artists to transform graffitied cabinets into beautiful murals to reduce the amount of vandalism on the cabinets.

“Every year, we are amazed by the quality of submissions and the level of creativity artists bring to their designs and this year has been no different,” Chorus community relations manager Jo Seddon says.
