New Murals for Westfield Manukau

Tactical creative art solutions ensuring a tag-free centre for our customers

Westfield are proud to be working with Beautification Trust and local multidisciplinary artist, Pascal Atiga-Bridger. Pascal specialises in painting on tactical creative solutions and innovative approaches to ensure tag-free buildings and carparks here at Westfield Manukau.

The Beautification Trusts mission is to connect and empower communities to learn, love and look after our environment. They focus on leading beautification projects, community events, zero waste programmes and environmental education all over South and East Auckland. Facilitated by the trust we have been fortunate to work with Pascal on some street art murals in our carparks.

We asked Pascal about his art and passion

What inspired the artwork at Westfield Manukau and what does it represent?

My murals at Westfield Manukau were inspired by native birds and flora. Birds such as the
Tūi and flowers like the Pohutukawa are iconic in New Zealand. For me they represent
sacredness, uniqueness and familiarity.

What drew you to become a mural artist?

Bringing joy to our communities through positive imagery and use of bright colours and helping to beautify public spaces through art.

Whilst studying for a degree in Visual Arts I practised various art forms. One of my subjects was based on street art and painting murals. This helped inspire me to pursue a career as a mural artist.

What does it mean to you to support communities with your art?

Painting murals for communities is very humbling and knowing that my art is helping to beautify public spaces is very rewarding.

Given you use a lot of native birds in your designs, do you have a favourite
bird to paint?

The Tūi is the bird I most like to paint. I get to showcase the Tui's various shades of greens and blues.

How would you describe your art style?

I feel my art is a mixture of Street Art and Realism based on Image Murals. I like my murals to have an urban look to them. Bold colours, clean lines and not too hyper-realistic.
