Design Inspiration

Inspired by Steam Punk, re-purposing, art from junk… Christchurch has seen its fair share of hardships and trouble, but we always emerge from the rubble, stronger than before. ‘Punk It Penguin’ has an armour covered in rustic, patina and re-purposed scraps – incorporating a variety of materials such as spray paints, acrylic and varying materials; ‘foiling’ in golds, metals, bronze – taking a plain piece of plastic and turning it into gold, leather, wood, bone and metal with specific painting techniques, to create the illusion of armour.
