Bruce has been painting murals/ street art on public buildings in New Zealand and England since 2005.
You can see some photos of some of his murals/street art below and in the GALLERY.
Murals are a good way to decorate your house or brand your business as well as deterring tagging, particularly if 'graffiti guard is applied afterwards.
If you would like a quote for a mural (or a sign) please send me an email at - [email protected] .
One of the walls at Park Road Kitchen in Miramar in Wellington (2015)
"Bruce is an incredibly experienced mural artist who knows the process, from preparing a site to graffiti guarding a wall. He is reliable, works swiftly and is a super-friendly guy to boot."
(Katie Taylor-Duke - Arts Programmes Advisor - Wellington City Council)
'Uenuku's Wall - at the basin Reserve in Wellington for Transit New Zealand - 2006
Zoo Bus-stop Mural for the Wellington City Council (2012)
"Bruce is a great man to work with – not just as an artist with ideas that he can execute very well, but is practical and has an understanding
of what clients and other key personnel need to make a project work. He responds well to changes in circumstances (we moved the original
location to this wall which was a big improvement) and he puts a lot of effort into the end result. His execution is of top quality and
you will get an original, thought provoking and considered piece of art as a result." (John Burton - Urban Space Management -Trinity Buoy Wharf - London)
This mural at 'Trinity Buoy Wharf n London (2012) was used as the backdrop for a car advertisement.

"Thanks to Wellington artist Bruce Mahalski, the wall murals at Kakapo Kids Early Childhood Centre have become a Te Aro landmark. Once
Bruce received the brief he transformed our concept designs into realistic and natural looking forest scenes. Bruce was a pleasure to work
with, and we highly recommend his talent and professionalism. (Jan Tromp - Centre Manager)
