World of Wearable Art, Wellington, 2016
Creative Inspiration


World of WearableArt® has announced the creative team for the 28th WOW® Awards Show, New Zealand’s largest performing arts event founded by Dame Suzie Moncrieff.


Returning Show Directors Aucklanders Mike Mizrahi and Marie Adams will spearhead a team which includes Musical Director Don McGlashan as well as a number of New Zealand’s most significant artists and designers, technical experts and theatre practitioners, including artist Reuben Paterson, who will bring to the event a burst of colour and glitz.


Reuben Paterson is a source of creative inspiration for this year’s show. A dynamic young artist known for his creations in glitter and diamond dust.


“We’re working with artist Reuben Paterson to create the show’s look and feel, using his explosive, colourful artwork as inspiration. We’re also working with Weta Workshop this year for the first time. We’ve known co-founder and co-director Richard Taylor for years, but this is the first time we actually get to work together”.
