‘Punk it Penguin’
Created by: Laura Hewetson
Inspired by Steam Punk, re-purposing, art from junk… Christchurch has seen its fair share of hardships and trouble, but we always emerge from the rubble, stronger than before. ‘Punk It Penguin’ has an armour covered in rustic, patina and re-purposed scraps – incorporating a variety of materials such as spray paints, acrylic and varying materials; ‘foiling’ in golds, metals, bronze – taking a plain piece of plastic and turning it into gold, leather, wood, bone and metal with specific painting techniques, to create the illusion of armour.

All About the Penguins
Wild in Art is bringing a second sculpture trail to Christchurch on 29 November 2020. In partnership with Presenting Partner, Harcourts and with the support of many other sponsors and funders, Pop Up Penguins will give residents and visitors a fresh opportunity to discover and delight in all that makes Ōtautahi special.
The public art trail will include 50 large penguin sculptures, sponsored by companies and decorated by established and emerging artists, along with 65 little penguins, decorated by schools as part of the Pop Up Penguins Learning Programme.
All decorated penguins will be displayed across Christchurch on a public art trail that will celebrate all the unique parts of our city. The penguins will highlight themes like climate change, community, Antarctica, creativity, innovation and exploration.
After nine weeks, out and about in Christchurch, the street sized penguins will be auctioned to raise money for Cholmondeley Children’s Centre.
