New Zealand Mosaic Art
Primordial Karangahake - Michael Manoa Coles

Michael Manoa Coles

I am a Wellington based mosaic artist with works in public and private spaces. Many of my mosaic artworks feature handmade tiles of complex texture and colour. These are often assembled alongside mirror and commercial tiles to create unique mosaics that shimmer and ‘move’. I am equally comfortable with chunky mediums such as handmade bricks, concrete and other found items. “I love those moments when experimenting by combining different colours, textures or materials leads to an effect that makes me go ‘wow!”.

As a primary school teacher, I enjoy guiding students in creating and contributing to mosaic.
