The first street art festival of its kind in New Zealand, Graffiato: Taupō Street Art Festival captures the diversity of mural painting practice, and what’s new and relevant in global urban culture.
Graffiato's ever-expanding portfolio of over 85 murals brings transformation, wonder and vibrancy to the urban lane ways and streets they inhabit. Even locals continue to find surprises hidden away down these charming back alleys.
The new curator for the 12th year of Graffiato: Taupo Street Art Festival is arts manager, Olivia Laita.
Equipped with a PhD in Chemistry, Olivia uses logic creatively and holistically to manage art projects and has been doing so for 11 years. Her CV includes project management of the Askew One ‘Wynyard Quarter Silos’, curator manager for the ‘Post-Graffiti Pacific’ exhibitions in Auckland and Sydney and assistant manager for SWIDT’s award winning album ‘Stoneyhunga’.
