doodlewear 'Tui’s Floral Fiesta' (July 2023) is a high-quality Kiwiana tshirt by Auckland Contemporary Artist Anna Mollekin in collaboration with Wellington's illustrative artist, Lesh McNicholl of Lesh Creates. These quality tees feature a mixed-media artwork, fusing acrylic, Indian ink, and digital art. The art showcases New Zealand's native beauty, featuring Kowhai, Manuka, silver fern, and Harakeke flowers in a circular layout, accompanied by a poised Tui bird. Anna's bold digital art and Lesh's nature-inspired illustrations, blending modern and vintage styles, celebrate New Zealand's enchanting flora and fauna.
"Immerse yourself in the inspiration behind our artwork. Lesh's love for nature and her encounters with the enchanting Tui during walks around Miramar Peninsula, Wellington led her to create stunning illustrations featuring the Tui bird paired with her favourite NZ native flower, Manuka. Anna, in turn, found inspiration in Lesh's work, leading her to infuse the Tui and exquisite florals into her own art, creating a captivating collaboration that celebrates the beauty of New Zealand's flora and fauna."
Kiwiana tshirt is available in adult t shirt sizes.
