The 2015 Whitireia NZ creative artist in residence Hyunbae Lee, who hails from Seoul, South Korea, held an exhibition and series of workshops at The Old McDonalds . Lee, a fine arts painter trained in the Netherlands and Korea, was sponsored by the Asia New Zealand Foundation for a three month residency at Whitireia. The project at OMD involved mentoring painting students on the Bachelor of Applied Arts programme. Lee created a series of oil paintings which took shape in the Fale studio at the Whitireia Visual Arts department and then journeyed to the heart of Porirua in the old McDonald’s space in Cobham Court.
