‘Jacinda and a terrible orange’ artwork up for grabs on Trade Me

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Community News

A sketch of Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern holding a “terrible orange” drawn in an unflattering resemblance of US President Donald Trump is selling on Trade Me.

The original artwork was made by a New Zealand artist using a graphite pencil and watercolours.

"The artwork is signed and dated on the back and framed in a 18" x 24" Rimu frame with a white mat border," it states on the auction.

The auction closes on Sunday, and the current bid is $177. The reserve price has not been met yet.

The artwork is titled “Jacinda and a terrible orange”.

Poll: Are you confident Auckland's light rail project will go ahead?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Auckland mayor Phil Goff says an announcement could be made soon on Auckland's light rail.

The $6 billion project to revive a tram network in Auckland was one of Labour's initial election promises in 2017.

After Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's big victory on October 17, the light rail system connecting the airport to Auckland's central city may finally get off the ground.

But Transport Minister Phil Twyford alluded key decisions are still to be made.

Twyford said in June the governing parties could not agree on a preferred proposal and the future of the project would be decided by the new Government following the election.
