Written by on September 1, 2015


 Santos Cafe Ponsonby has always been a great champion of local artists, and their art wall has been part of the vibe since 1996. Many young aspiring artists have become a household name since they first exhibited on Santos’art wall. The Santos art wall is named Arte Na Favela.

Exhibiting in September is artist James King

Artists Statement:

“Politics, society, freedom of speech and psychological warfare are all elements of my paintings.

After overcoming a wealth of harsh life experiences, my use of shapes, dots, drips and primary colours provide a window into my personal struggle and a statement about New Zealand and the context of the individuals within.

I have been painting for seven years and have had numerous solo and group shows and have also had my work bought by local and international collectors.”
