There are several wall murals on former warehouses along West Quay at Ahuriri. The most poignant is titled “Ingested Plastic Pollutions/Lonely Whale.” The blue whale averages 98 feet in length. This painting by New Zealand artist Dside is at full scale. Although this giant marine mammal has no natural predators, they are severely impacted by the ten million tons of plastic dumped annually into the world’s oceans. The sponsor for his mural was Resene Paints Ltd., New Zealand’s largest privately-owned paint manufacturer and distributor.
