Matt Dowman takes part in Year of the Rat in Parnell

The Parnell Business Association is highlighting ‘Rat Art’ in order to raise money for Starship – National Air Ambulance.

Whitecliffe Lecturer in Fine Arts Matt Dowman has contributed a digital limited edition print of Kung Fu Rat as one of New Zealand’s finest artists taking part in an initiative run by The Parnell Business Association.

This year, the association is highlighting ‘Rat Art’ in order to raise money for Starship – National Air Ambulance.

"It's great to be able to contribute to a great cause," says Dowman. "There are only 21 limited edition prints of Kung Fu Rat available to purchase for $200 each online."

Dowman received his BFA from Whitecliffe in 2002, and a MFA with honours from Auckland University’s Elam School of Fine Arts in 2004. He has had success exhibiting throughout New Zealand as well as offshore in Melbourne, Sydney, Berlin and Vienna.

"Not only do you get some cool art but you also get to help kids and their families…a great way to help kids an local artists on in Parnell until February 16th."
