Young Auckland visual artist Holly Schroder created the flagship poster for the Papatūānuku, Urban Flora and Fauna Trails, and you can see more of her work at a favourite local bar and restaurant Pocketbar.
Life is full-on for Holly Schroder, working full time from her home studio in Ponsonby. Holly works in a number of mediums and fields from large scale acrylic painting, animation, light installation to running weekly art-making workshops, and still finds time to participate in our Artweek. Go Holly!
Holly's style has been described as rhythmic, patterned and high-contrast. Some works are rendered simply in black and white but when Holly uses colour, it is bold and highly saturated. “My style, in paintings and other media including large-scale animations and light installations, is based on movement patterns I observe in everyday life. Diving into other media is a way of sparking ideas to bring back to my painting.”
