Five Rivers by Pip and Zoe Paint, 49 Dixon Street

Zoe and Pip (Pippa Keel and Zoe Gillett) were immediately drawn to Wairarapa’s five rivers, home to NZ’s endemic Longfin eels. 

Water and flow became the basis for their mural concept - the waters of each river weaving together.

Within these flowing waters, Zoe and Pip highlight some of the native species that call the rivers and surrounding estuaries home. Snippets of endemic Sea Primrose and other native aquatic plants sit at the water’s edge, drawing the viewer in.
