This book only shows the tip of the iceberg of art available in Nelson and Tasman. There are beautiful murals at most of the schools, tiny murals hidden on walls and down alleyways, sculptures all around the city and creative people in almost every inch of the region. With this book comes a map of where all the murals are. It is much better to experience their size and energy in person. Whilst you follow the map around the city, look for other interesting works of art on your journey, it will open your eyes to the beauty and wonder that is Nelson, New Zealand. Can you find: cupid with a gun, the kiwi rugby player, tug of war, mosaic toilets...? (Upload your photos to our Facebook page to share the joy)

A special thanks to: Chris Finlayson for help with information on his mural projects. Nelson Plastics for their precision laser cutting skills. Speedy Print Nelson for printing and binding the book. Printhouse for sourcing the sustainable card for the cover. And to all the artists and locals who helped make this book possible by creating amazing works of art, worth making a book about.
