Josh O’Rourke’s wall mural has visibly taken inspiration from the local environment – specifically the weather that impacts on the coastal area. An abstract version of a topographic weather map, it symbolises weather systems and the huge impact they have on residents and visitors – often dictating whether they have a good or bad experience which has a flow-on effect economically for the area. As a surfer himself, the artist has a close connection to these weather patterns which is relevant to many people who will pass by and view the artwork.

O’Rourke is a graduate of University of Canterbury Ilam School of Fine Arts, in Painting. He has exhibited widely throughout Christchurch and New Zealand, this is his first large-scale outdoor artwork.
