Beer Paint Skate

Friday 28th April 2023 6:00pm - 9:00pm
Where  Toi Tauranga, 108 Willow street, Tauranga View Map

In this workshop, painting and skating collide!

Make your mark on a new skate deck, draw, design and paint to create your very own unique hand-painted skateboard deck. While sipping on a tasty beer, thanks to Mount Brewing Co.

Local artist Paul Darragh will lead the workshop, Paul left his career as a high-profile advertising campaign manager in New York to pursue a full-time career as an artist. Paul's practice lies at the intersection of mural-based street art and canvas painting. His newly commissioned project exploits the intersection of these two media and the distinctions between ‘high’ and ‘low’ art. Paul will share his creative skill set and painting techniques guiding you to find your style. At the end of the session, each person will leave with their hand-painted skate deck. 

Paul's exhibition at Toi Tauranga Shape Up or Ship Out takes the iconic shipping containers that dominate Tauranga’s local port as a point of departure. Visual symbols of bar codes, logos and QR Codes are combined and remixed with national and maritime flags to encompass the wider language of the global shipping network. While the exhibition’s title makes a direct reference to this initial inspiration for the show, Darragh also uses it to address the reality of being an artist and the associated ‘hustle’; it is his continued work in commercial design that funds his career as a practicing artist. 

The evening is supported by Mount Brewing Co. who have generously offered a selection of tasty craft beer for the night. Snacks will be provided.
