Cancelled set of four gummed stamps.
The four artworks selected for the stamp collection are by Matthew Tonkin, Katie McMillan, Malachi Oldridge and Charlize Wilson - the past four winners of the L’affare People’s Choice Award.
$1.70 Matthew Tonkin, 'Aeroplane'
Matthew’s screen print, the winner in 2021, was created at Two4nine art studio in Auckland. It is the result of his time spent mastering techniques and experimenting with colours and his own unique designs.
$3.00 Katie McMillan, 'Colourful Unicorn'
“I love all the bright colours and making this. I hope when people see it, they are happy,” says Katie about her 2020 winning artwork, which is made from coloured acrylic pompoms over a paper-mâché support, mounted on a shield.
$3.80 Malachi Oldridge, 'My Nani as a Māori Girl'
Malachi won in 2019 with a graphite pencil drawing on paper, paying tribute to his grandmother. The artwork is influenced by the late E. Mervyn Taylor’s artwork, 'Māori Girl (Hina)'.
$5.10 Charlize Wilson, 'Looking Out from the Inside'
Charlize was only 13 when she won the L’affare People’s Choice Award in 2018 for her acrylic piece. She says art helps her "be herself" and that she likes doing art, "because it’s so much fun".
