Street artist Ha Ha is one of the scene's more popular operators, with his stencil pieces well known here and in laneways across Australia. When he's not working, Ha Ha is also known as born and bred Hamiltonian Regan Tamanui, and the proud Waikato boy has donated two of his highly prized works to a Trade Me auction to raise money for Community Radio Hamilton's 89FM project.

The two pieces are his acclaimed Maori Warrior (pictured) and the inconic Kiwi drag queen Carmen.
