Outdoor art does not last forever, murals fade or get painted over, sculptures get decommissioned or moved and painted utility boxes become victim to roadside accidents or get replaced.

This page presents the Lost Art of New Zealand, the outdoor art that is no longer with us, gone but not forgotten. Here you can find the original location and a photograph of the art before it was removed. If the artwork was by one of our featured artists you can also link through the their page to see the lost art alongside the rest of their portfolio.
