Urbis | Issue 80


Urbis hit the newsstands today and it's the Art issue! Nothing like a bright pop of yellow to brighten your day...

The striking cover shot by Jeff Brass features the Wellington home of artist Max Patté, The Englishman bought the home, which is adorned with many of his life-sized glass-reinforced concrete sculptures, in 2012, six years after arriving in New Zealand. He makes his works, including the one that sits on Wellington’s waterfront, at Weta Workshop, where he manages the sculpture department. 

A must-read issue for art lovers, this is a still from a photo shoot featuring works by local artists. Photography by Toaki Okano, styling by Sara Black and Juliette Wanty.

How's this for a teaser? An incredible shot of the 'Hot house', a beautiful series of artist studios on Canada's Fogo island. Photography by Bent René Synnevåg.

Also in the new issue, we're introduced to the Urbis cocktail! Yum! The cocktail, named Urbis Square Peg, Round Hole, is on the menu at Ostro in Britomart. Readers can take a picture of themselves and the drink (before the end of June), and share it on Instagram with the hashtag #urbiscocktail to go into the draw to win a $100 bar tab at Ostro and a year-long subscription to Urbis. Be sure to sure follow Urbis on Instagram (@urbismagazine). Photography by David Straight.
