‘We are third-year Wintec students and our tutor thought it would be fun to display our work in public’.
This was the very modest explanation that the nice lady at 128 Alexandra Street gave us when we popped into Brick by Brick on Hamilton’s Art Alley.
The artwork in the pop-up gallery, however, is far from modest. Individually, the pieces are creative, thought-provoking and different from each other, with the piece de resistance paying homage to Toro building blocks of New Zealand childhoods past.
Brick by Brick is eclectic and visually stunning. It’s free, it’s on until Sunday, and it’s a must-see for anyone craving a feast for the eyes.
