The Corner Store residents

We're stoked to be 'home' to a great bunch of resident creatives and artists. Find out more about them below:



Uncle Harold is a Christchurch based visual artist and illustrator heavily influenced by the subversive works of underground artists who pioneered the merging of skate culture and art.

Employing the same approach to skating, in seeing the potential of an object to be transformed into something other than its intended use, Uncle Harold’s work chronicles his daily life.
