Hi, I'm Aaron King-Cole - Store Manager

I graduated from Auckland’s Elam School of Fine Art in 2008. In addition to my role at Gordon Harris I’m a casual graphic designer and a practicing artist, exhibiting work locally and abroad since 2001. I bring to the store a diverse skill-set and knowledge of materials, with a strong foundation in drawing, watercolour and printmaking, and a passion for folk-craft such as felting and cross-stitch.

The Symonds Street store, although the smallest of the Gordon Harris stores, is hugely dynamic and strives to follow the various requirements of the many university and school students in Auckland’s busy CBD.

We also cater to professional artists, illustrators, street art vendors, tattoo artists, designers, model-makers, hobbyists and the seasonal watercolour classes that amble up from cruise ships docked in the harbour each summer – anyone with a creative project or pursuit!

Whether you need a Russian blue squirrel watercolour brush, metallic polymer modelling clay, a squeegee, or an eraser – the team at Symonds Street will endeavour to satisfy your requirements with friendly, expert advice and top quality products by leading international and local brands.

I look forward to seeing you in-store!

Aaron and the team
