Mural by Mr G on the Obo building in the early morning sun

Mural by Mr G on the Obo building in the early morning sun

Street artist Graham Hoete, otherwise known as Mr G, has painted a giant mural on the Obo building in Mihaere Drive featuring Sir Edmund Hillary, Kate Sheppard and Sir Āpirana Ngata. Hoete was eager to create the mural because of the values the three identities represent and their contribution to New Zealand. Obo founder Simon Barnett said Hillary, Ngata and Sheppard were chosen by himself and Obo staff because they reflected the values of his business, which makes protective sports gear. "[Hillary] has humility, we talk about being humble but doing outstanding things and taking on the world ... the staff valued what [Ngata] has bought to the country and Māoridom and young people ... and the equality for women was important to us."
