Janine and Charles Williams's Auckland
We are graffiti and contemporary artists. We create visual stories that connect us to the whenua (land) and to the tangata whenua (local people) we encounter along the way.

Charles moved here at 13 from a challenging childhood and for him Auckland was a place of opportunity. He started a graffiti crew (TMD) in the early 90s that went on to win the world championship (twice), and holds a Guinness World Record for the world’s longest graffiti scroll in Dubai alongside the Ironlak Team.

12 Hours in Parnell
The best things to eat, see and do in Parnell.
Parnell lies on the fringe of Auckland CBD, and is often cited as Auckland’s first suburb. Quite the claim in a city that now exceeds sixty ‘burbs. The history is evident in the historical architecture found within the neighbourhood; a visit to the Kinder House or Hulme Court offers a small window into the past.
Parnell - in recent years - has emerged as a home for bespoke dining experiences, excellent coffee, enviable boutique shopping and a precinct reminiscent of downtown New York. Shaking off its once prim and proper image. The concentration of dealer galleries in the area make it a go-to destination for Aucklanders on a mission to find coveted artwork.
Parnell is surprisingly green for its proximity to the city. Naturally blessed with a plethora of gardens and reserves; The Domain with its curiously charming Winter Gardens and inimitable Auckland Museum give the suburb a distinctive perimeter unlike any other.
