Kids' Wall Art by Go Benny Go

Finally. Go Benny Go is here! Our website and Etsy Store have gone live, launching with kids' wall art in the form of printed canvases and posters. Gift cards are planned for release in the next few months, and it is our hope that there will be many more products to follow. Take a look at our first collection of children's canvas art prints. It truly felt like it would never happen, but here they are:

Go Benny Go Kids' Wall Art - Counting Monsters Triptych
Bedding and toy are also Go Benny Go designs but are currently not available for purchase.

Above is my favourite from the collection - a three piece set of 30cm x 30cm canvases featuring our counting monsters. Each monster has something that corresponds to the number next to him, such as 4 legs, or 12 flies. See if you can spot what they are; here are the same characters in poster format:

We will show some close-ups of the counting monsters on the Go Benny Go Blog shortly. All the other prints in the first collection are 20cm x 20cm canvases, and we have a range of both girls and boys' designs.

Our focus has been firmly on quality. We have taken great care to ensure the prints are of the highest standard and we are proud of the result. There is a vibrancy and clarity to the prints that is impossible to convey in web images. We use genuine pigment inks, formulated with built-in UV protection to inhibit fading, and a quality U.S manufactured canvas - a heavy weight 430gsm with a lovely texture, it exceeds the standards of the Worldwide Fine Art Trade Guild for archival quality. For extra protection the canvases are sealed with a couple of coats of laminate, protecting against UV fading, scratching, and water. The laminate also contains anti-fungal components. The prints are hand-stretched over high quality kiln-dried New Zealand pine stretcher bars, and come ready to hang. If looked after they will last a lifetime.

We've aimed to create a unique range that will stimulate a child's imagination; canvases that last and can be kept as a memento of a childhood. We hope you like our collection.

Go Benny Go at Cosset Café, Auckland

The new Go Benny Go collection of kids' wall art will be exhibited at Cosset Café in Mt Albert, Auckland, from Monday 27 June until Sunday 3 July. If you haven't already been to Cosset you are sure to enjoy it - the coffee is excellent, and the food too is fantastic. The café has a lovely ambiance and is my favourite in Auckland; I feel very privileged to be able to show our artworks there. Get along next week, soak up the cool vibes of Cosset, and check out Go Benny Go at the same time.


  1. I think they are fabulous - very clever. My son is two he is obsessed with the moon, numbers, umbrellas and faces...so there is so much for him to like. The bedding! That is stunning I would buy in a heartbeat if (fingers crossed when) available...

  2. Thanks Nic! The quilts and cushions are samples we designed a few years ago now. They never quite made it to manufacture for a host of reasons. It is something I would like to bring into the collection later - I would love to have a bedding range for sure :)

  3. LOVE your bedroom....the bed is gorgeous..in love with the color!
