Egg-ceptional - Whittaker’s Big Egg Hunt

Dozens of eggs with a Resene paint finish featured in the Whittaker’s Big Egg Hunt Following the success of last year’s inaugural hunt, 100 giant eggs created by leading and emerging New Zealand artists, designers and celebrities were hidden in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch for nearly a month.

The Whittaker’s Big Egg Hunt raises funds for the Starship Foundation, an organisation which supports the national children’s hospital to provide world-leading care for more than 120,000 patient visits each year. Each egg was lovingly decorated by a different artist, some of whom returned from last year and others who were new to the fundraising campaign.

Artists included Askew One, BMD, Dean Proudfoot, Dick Frizzell, Flox, Hannah Jensen, Ingrid Boot, Keven Mealamu, Mervyn Williams, Misery, Reuben Paterson, Rod Emmerson, Taika Waititi, WORLD and Zambesi.

Dozens of eggs featured a Resene paint finish, yet each egg was distinctively different. It’s amazing what a couple of coats of paint and a creative imagination can do to transform a surface into a masterpiece of its own. Some of the eggs nested in Resene ColorShops, including the elusive Wally egg that moved around throughout the Hunt.
