Opticmix At Level 3.2


Kia ora Everyone,


Opticmix is at Lockdown Level 3.2 and we would like to clarify how that will affect our clients.


We will continue to offer contactless pickup and drop offs and we will also continue to send test prints to clients at our cost. Effectively, there will be no change. 


We will reassess these procedures when Auckland moves into using the proposed Traffic Light system on the 29 November but a heads up, we’re a vaccinated team and our primary concern is, as always in this pandemic, keeping ourselves, extended family, our staff and theirs, and our clients and theirs safe. Best practice for us will be maintaining that, and procedures for opening up further will be with that front and foremost.


Stay well,



On behalf of Team Opticmix

Raúl Ortega Ayala “The Zone” – Te Tuhi

“Since his first visit to the area surrounding the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in northern Ukraine in 2013, Mexican-born artist Raúl Ortega Ayala has been involved in a seven-year research project centered on what he calls ‘sites of amnesia and historical detritus’.”

Currently showing at Te Tuhi in Pakuranga, this is a great exhibition to go and engage in post lock-down. Opticmix printed some large format photographic prints that are displayed alongside large scale wallpaper prints.


“The Zone” is a current exhibition running until the 16th of August 2020.

Pati Solomona Tyrell “Oracles” – City Gallery Wellington

“Pati Solomona Tyrell is a founding member of Auckland’s Fafswag collective, whose members proudly celebrate their LGBTQ Pacific-Islander identities. Photographing himself and his circle in their performance guises, his work traverses the documentary and the directorial.”

Opticmix had the pleasure of printing work for Pati for the “Orcales” Exhibtion at Wellington City Gallery.

These exhibited works are all large format (900mm x 600mm) photographic prints on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag Ultra Smooth (305gsm).

“Oracles” is a current exhibition running until the 6th of September 2020.
