Strange bandit

I’m excited to be exhibiting these limited edition prints at ‘Strange Bandit by Luciano’ here in Christchurch. Strange Bandit is the brainchild of Christchurch‘s most awarded baristas Luciano Marcolino and Zhen Xu (Q). Q is the face of Strange Bandit and has been awarded 'Barista of the Year' by the Christchurch Hospitality Awards multiple times. Q is also a master of latte art, where he skillfully transforms your latte foam into anything from T-Rex's to birds (something I can appreciate)! Come and see these limited edition photographs while enjoying Christchurch’s best coffee!

Sneak Peek

FRAME SIZE: 52cm (W) x 58cm (H)

An endangered kea reveals some of its beautiful hidden colours. Often described as ‘olive green and brown’, kea conceal a wonderful secret - those fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of a kea’s underwing are treated to a beautiful display of royal blues with vibrant reds and oranges with splashes of yellow. These beautiful birds are the world's only alpine parrot.

March of the Penguins

FRAME SIZE: 108cm (W) x 58cm (H)

With bellies full of squid and fish, three Fiordland crested penguins (Tawaki) walk up the beach to their nesting sites after a day of fishing. These rare and mysterious forest penguins are certainly dressed to impress, sporting classy tuxedos, striking cheek stripes and spunky yellow crests, tawaki are the rock stars of New Zealand wildlife.

Alpine Treasure

FRAME SIZE: 75cm (W) x 58cm (H)

Nothing says ‘South Island New Zealand’ quite like a Kea in snow! These endangered New Zealand birds are the world’s only alpine parrot. These cheeky parrots give a whole new meaning to the term ‘bird brain’ and are considered to be one of most intelligent bird species in the world; a vital trait for survival in the changeable New Zealand Alps. Kea are listed as a nationally endangered species and the status of the wild kea population remains unclear.

First Steps

FRAME SIZE: 75cm (W) x 58cm (H)

Not much bigger than the pebbles, a day old banded dotterel chick surveys its new environment. While many of us in the South of New Zealand are freezing during winter many of these small jet setters go on a winter holiday to Australia via Auckland, Norfolk and Lord Howe Islands to South Queensland, whence they work south along the Australian coast.

Moeraki Sunrise

FRAME SIZE: 75cm (W) x 58cm (H)

The warm rising sun casts long shadows of yellow-eyed penguins as they socialise and prepare for a day of fishing. Listen to their gaudy morning shrills and it is easy to see why the Māori named these birds hoiho, ‘noise makers’. Yellow-eyed Penguins are considered the rarest of all penguins with an estimated population of 4000 individuals.

Estuary King

FRAME SIZE: 35cm (W) x 40cm (H)

A New Zealand kingfisher holds a small wriggling crab firmly in its large bill. New Zealand’s estuaries have a seemingly endless supply of these bite-sized snacks available whenever the tide retreats. The New Zealand kingfisher is one of New Zealand’s most beautiful birds with their stunning iridescent aqua-marine colours. The poet Gerard Manley Hopkins describes the sight of a flying kingfisher; he said ‘kingfishers catch fire’, as they seem to be combinations of feather and flame in the setting sun.

Autumn Duckling

FRAME SIZE: 35cm (W) x 40cm (H)

A tiny duckling, born on the wrong side of spring plays among the autumn leaves. Defying nature and the seasons, this beautiful little duckling is thriving and enjoying Christchurch’s beautiful autumn.
