Former Taranaki artist Michael Smither is directing a world record attempt to paint the world's longest artwork, starting in Kuranui Bay, Thames.

Smither is adding his own creative talent to a 3.5 kilometre concrete walkway which is being turned into a sea of colour and images by local artists. Smither said the idea was for the artwork to be viewed from above, and enjoyed as a journey, on foot, bike, scooter, wheelchair or mobility scooter. Fairfax NZ
