Paradox Festival

Paradox : Tauranga Street Art Festival


Brought to you by



Tauranga City Council in partnership with Oi YOU! and the Tauranga Art Gallery are proud to present Paradox: Tauranga Street Art Festival featuring the Oi YOU! Collection and works by internationally acclaimed artists.

The festival is the first of its kind in Tauranga and is paradoxical in its nature not only by bringing street art into a gallery but also by internationally acclaimed artists turning the city into an outdoor gallery, adding to the city’s existing display of street art.


Presented by

Oi You          Tauranga City Council          Tauranga Art Gallery


The collection includes the most extensive assembly of the works of the acclaimed street artist Banksy, in the Southern Hemisphere. It is the first time the comprehensive Oi YOU! Collection is being exhibited in the North Island of New Zealand. But the festival is more than just the Oi YOU! Collection.
