Daniel Mills

Mills with Boxer, painted rock.
Dan Mills has literally painted a town, well more of a suburb - Naenae is a major suburb in the city of Lower Hutt, New Zealand, where he has painted several murals.

Mills was called on by the charismatic Billy Graham (a former New Zealand and Australasian light welterweight boxing champion). Billy is a motivational speaker and he also runs the Naenae Boxing Academy. Billy had a whole lotta rocks on his hands and he asked Dan to paint a series of all the heavyweight boxing champions in the world on the face of the rocks. These now sit surrounding the Boxing Academy.
