    The Mudge Murals

Revisit the late Graeme Mudge’s large-scale works in a fresh light in Mark Peters’ book, The Mudge Murals. The book is packed with pictures, stories and a selection of the Gisborne artist’s rarely seen preliminary drawings and designs. The Mudge Murals is available at $45 from Tairāwhiti Museum and Muirs Bookshop or contact the author directly at markpeters@xtra.co.nz The Mudge Murals is a not-for-profit project supported by Creative Communities and Gisborne District Council and Friends of the Museum.

Here you will find 'NINE' of Graeme Mudge's wonderful Murals: * 'Town Crier' Mural; * Forestry Walk Mural; * War Memorial Theatre Mural; * Children's Train Station Mural; * Gisborne Gaol-Jail, * Time of Sails; * Triathlon Club Murals; * Post Office & Magistrates Court Murals; * Watties Wall Mural . . . more will be added in days to come . . .

Time may have faded some of the Murals, of the late Graeme Mudge. But these photos will bring back memories of Graeme's amazing skill as an artist. Having met with him in his home studio in late 2011 - and with his endorsement to go take photos and display them on our website, we trust that all will find them a delight and blessing to brighten your day.

The BUS Shelter ^^

This beautiful BUS Shelter Mural is found on corner Bright Street & Gladstone Road Gisborne city... Featured in the bus-stop mural is Mr Mudge’s wife Lizette. The artist himself can be seen in the work too, not as a passenger but as a crouching, bearded bloke painting a watercolour of the bus from across the road.
