doodlewear 'Te Mata Bay' (September 2023) art print beach tshirt by New Zealand illustrative artist Lesh Creates. This high-quality tee features an art print of a beautiful kiwiana holiday Bach beach scene at “Te Mata Bay,” situated on the Thames Coast Road approximately halfway between Thames and Coromandel Town on the Coromandel Peninsula, New Zealand. The artwork captures the essence of the location, adorned with a pied shag bird, frequently observed along the coastline, and embellished with a few Pohutukawa flowers along the circular boundary. These flowers serve as a tribute to the numerous Pohutukawa trees lining the coastal road and hills/ This captivating artwork emanates a contemporary retro vibe, beautifully brought to life with acrylic paint and an Indian ink pen. The artist has digitally signed the artwork.

"This artwork was part of a series I created in 2023 called 'New Zealand through the Looking Glass.' Customers sent me photos of their favourite New Zealand places in a natural setting. A customer requested featuring the beach bach their family would holiday at during the summer. Included in the art is a pied shag, which is frequently spotted along the coastline, as well as a few Pohutukawa flowers trimming the circular boundary as a reminder of the many Pohutukawa trees that can be seen along the coastal road and in the hills. Even though this artwork depicts a specific bay, it somehow feels very familiar and is reminiscent of a Kiwi summer holiday. I aimed to evoke the feeling of looking through a telescope and highlight what were important memories for my customers. It's something I believe many Kiwis would connect with and feel nostalgia for, even if they haven't been to this particular location."
