The Team...past and present


When you join the Blueriver team you are presented with a blank 8” x 8” canvas and a set of acrylic paints. You are given two weeks to return a painting which encapsulates your feelings of what it means to be part of the Blueriver Creative team. These images are shown above. The originals can be seen mounted on the wall at the Auckland studio.
