Paul Walsh is a self-taught artist, illustrator and web designer. His latest exhibition, ‘They Came From Mt Roskill’, is a series of paintings depicting the invasion of central Auckland by a swarm of robotic alien minotaurs.
The first ship landed in Scout Avenue, in the Auckland suburb of Mt Roskill. The alien lifeforms were initially seen in the vicinity of the Mt Roskill shops; they proceeded to make their way north, up Dominion Road, through Kingsland and into central Auckland, wreaking havoc on both the city and the inhabitants along the way.
These artworks are based on photographs from that infamous day.
