Larger Than Life – Owen Dippie
The Larger than Life – Owen Dippie project has been a partnership between city businesses, Priority One, Tauranga Chamber of Commerce, Tourism Bay of Plenty, Tauranga City Council and local urban artist Owen Dippie. It has seen a number of masterpieces, some depicting the renaissance period, painted on walls about the central city, creating an art trail. Highly sought after, Owen is well known for painting large scale city murals and has worked around New Zealand as well as internationally, including in New York. Owen completed five works the series and has since relocated to Auckland to pursue other opportunities. However he has close ties to Tauranga and would be available to work here again should an opportunity arise.
