The ride up in Wellington’s Cable Car is now brighter and more colourful thanks to a new mural. Designed and painted by Wellington artist Gina Kiel, the mural’s bright colours link in with the holographic pillars and the tunnel lighting. “It’s about vibrancy, movement, form and colour. We wanted to uplift the area and the experience,” Gina says. The mural is part of a Wellington City Council-supported programme, Tara-toi, to put more art on walls in the city.
“Wellington is home to talented artists working in several creative industries,” Mayor Justin Lester says. “More public art gives them the opportunity to express their work and strengthens the city’s identity as New Zealand’s Capital of Culture. “Gina’s mural has enlivened the terminal space with an abstract and contemporary piece that contributes to the uniqueness of a ride on the Cable Car.” The mural was painted through January and has just been completed.
