Cuba Street’ - Limited Edition Fine Art Print

Cuba Street is located in Wellington’s CBD, one of Te Aro’s earliest streets. It was first surveyed in the 1840’s. Before it was met with wakefields street it ran all the way to the waterfront at Jervois Quay. The Street was named after an early settler ship called ‘Cuba’ which arrived on our shores in 1840.

It is the best known street in Wellington, New Zealand. With eclectic fashion stores, vintage shops, independent boutiques, art & design stores and much more. It is a unique street where retail stores blend with cool cafes, bars and restaurants.

The rainbow crossing was completed on 10 October 2018 and is located at Cuba streets intersection with Dixon Street. Officially classed as an Art installation the crossing was installed to show support for the city’s LGBTQI (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer or Questioning, and Intersex) community. 

The ‘Beatles’ visited Wellington, NZ on 21st June 1964. 7000 hysterical fans greeted them in Wellington during their ‘Far East Tour’. They played in Wellington Town Hall on 22 and 23 June. 

Artist note - “I love the vibrancy of Cuba Street. My family and I are huge Beatles fans! I’m thankful and feel privileged to have been able to merge the iconic band into this painting.”
