Paint New Zealand Beautiful

As well as making our communities bright, colourful and creative, mural art has also been shown to reduce anti-social behaviour such as littering and graffiti and increase community pride. Resene is proud to work with Keep New Zealand Beautiful with the Paint New Zealand Beautiful programme to help beautify our communities.
