Ka puta i Te Āporo Nui te momo toi o graffiti, haere ngātahi ai me ngā pūoro hip hop i puea ake i te tekau tau atu i 1980. Nāwai ā, ka tae tēnei momo toi ki Aotearoa, ā, kapohia ai e ngā Māori me ngā iwi o Te Moananui-a-Kiwa, ka whakarerekē kia hāngai ki tēnei whenua me ōna āhua me āna tāngata. Ko Juse 1 tēnei kei te tā i tētahi pakitara i te papa rēhia o Waitangi i Te Whanganui-a-Tara. Kua oti i a rātou ko ōna hoa te auaha hoahoa kākahu, pānui whakaahua, waituhi tinana (tattoo). Kua whakaaturia ā rātou mahi ki te Taiwhanga Toi o Dowse (Dowse Art Gallery) i Te Awakairangi.
