Well done to all of the Rimu Hub students who performed in the Drama recital on Tuesday night.

Mickey To Tiki Tu Meke

We have been learning about different New Zealand artists across the arts. Here is a description of an iconic artwork by Dick Frizzell. It is written by Bella C.

Mickey to Tiki Tu Meke

This sketch is a transformation of Mickey Mouse to a tiki, It is designed by a artist named Dick Frizzell. It is called Mickey To Tiki Tu Meke. Dick Frizzell is a famous New Zealand artist who grow up barefoot in Hawkes Bay.

This piece of art starts out as Mickey Mouse then transforms in six steps into a Tiki. A tiki is something that is kiwiana and is often on a necklace.  There is a reversed version of this art that is Tiki To Mickey

The art tells us that there are similarities between NZ and Disney character.  I like this art because it is clever how he transforms one thing into another.  I chose this because it is one of my favourites from him.

Being happy and serious at the same time is something I find unique about it.  It is special to me because it was made by someone that went to the same school as me. And I believe I could do it too, with a little practice that is.
