One of New Zealand’s pre-eminent abstract artists, Milan Mrkusich, designed several large public artworks in Auckland in the 1950s-1960s.

The most well-known include a mosaic mural on the B. J. Ball Building overlooking Fanshawe Street as well as the stained glass windows at Grey Lynn’s St Joseph’s Catholic Church - the largest abstract work in the country at the time.

Not so well known is the large mosaic glass mural created for the lobby of Fort Street’s Chelsea Sugar Refinery Building in 1960.

This was later covered up by an internal façade and was recently uncovered when the building was redeveloped and thankfully saved. 

If you are in the Fort Street or Britomart area make sure you stop by and check it out.
