New Zealand Mosaic Art

Located so it is accessible to all, public art often has significance for the place in which you find it – commemorating an event, inviting interaction, or celebrating a cooperative effort by the community. Mosaics are robust. They’re great outdoors and invite a touch. These mosaics showcase what can be done when projects are commissioned by individuals or organisations such as councils, schools, boards or businesses.

A Couch With A View

Climb the steep slope up Days Track in Nelson and you’ll be relieved to find an amazing mosaic couch which absolutely invites you to stop for breath, take in the stunning view over Tasman Bay and Tahunanui, and wonder at the dedication of a community and the inspiration of a group of Nelson mosaic artists who created ‘Sofa so Good.’
