Never-before-seen works of street art are about to burst forth at one of New Zealand’s most loved coastal resort cities.

In a first for the Bay of Plenty’s city of Tauranga, a group of leading international street artists have been invited to create and display new artworks during the Paradox Street Art Festival.


Paradox is the newest event to come to Tauranga, on New Zealand’s North Island’s east coast. The festival runs from March 28 until June 15, 2017. A group of international and local artists will create artworks unique to Tauranga, which adds to an extension festival program of public wall paints, food, music and dance.

Paradox is described as paradoxical in its nature not only by bringing street art into a gallery, but also by internationally acclaimed artists turning the city into an outdoor gallery, adding to the city’s existing display of street art.
