This amazing large-scale artwork of Bob Marley was created by artist Matt Griffin. It was painted with aerosol on plywood during Bob Marley’s 75th Birthday Celebrations, originally leaning against a young native Kauri tree before the finishing final strokes at the Waitangi festival.
Matt and Universal Music NZ gifted this stunning painting, to help us raise funds to support the delivery of Music Therapy sessions for young Intermediate school students who live with physical and learning differences.
Raukatauri Music Therapy Centre delivers our ‘Music Club’ at Kamo Intermediate. They recognise each student’s individual uniqueness and worth, allowing them to celebrate what they are capable of rather than their challenges. Music Therapy brings huge joy to their lives!
Bidding and winning this work of art holds multiple opportunities. You get to own and showcase a stunning piece of NZ art for your home or business, support Matt Griffin – one of Aotearoa’s youngest large scale realist artists, and of course you get to make a difference by empowering our students who live with challenges, bringing more joy into their world through Music.
