Art of the Week

Week #4

Kia ora.

It is not uncommon to see Kemi hunched over his well worn, very full sketchbook jotting down ideas, figuring out a technical quandary or sketching sheds, shacks and baches.

There is a lot of gold hidden away in these humble books so we are going to start sharing selected pages here on Art of the Week. Read about this first one, Paekakariki Shed, below. 

We hope you are enjoying our Art of the Week features. If you'd rather not hear from us every week but still want to keep in touch you can change your preferences here.

We're running a little giveaway this month for a set of last weeks Running the Line works. To enter give us a hand sharing our work with like minded art lovers in any way you like. For example you could forward one of our emails to someone, regram one of our posts and tag us or share any of our facebook posts. 

Hope you are keeping dry!

With love and gratitude, 

Art of the Week #4

Paekakariki Shed
Sketch #1
Kemi has a keen eye for any ramshackle piece of architecture, so while Niko is busy watching the road on our semi frequent road trips, he is often snapping quickfire photos out the window. These photos are stored away as a growing reference base for our inexplicitly titled, Bach Portraits

This sketch, however, was drawn en plein air whilst Rhea slept in the buggy and Niko sold our wares and chatted about our work at the Paekakariki market last summer. It has a rustic charm that is heavily borrowed from the subject matter and enhanced by its quick creation.
