At 27, John Walsh painted the epic 20m long mural Portrait of Ūawa Tolaga Bay which at the time was deemed too radical to ever be exhibited. Now 40 years later, it has finally been installed at the New Zealand Portrait Gallery in Wellington. The exhibition also features a large number of other portraits painted by Walsh in this retrospective, open until 10 February 2019.
