The Newton Post Office was commissioned by the Ministry of Works and designed by architects Mark-Brown Fairhead and Sang. Wellington-based artist Guy Ngan created 'Star', to adorn its façade, and it has remained in situ since 1973. It exists as companion piece to Ngan’s Newton Post Office Mural (1973), which is now in the collection of Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki.
The piece was originally backed with brown tiles, but these were removed due to deterioration.
ArtSpace Aotearoa has occupied the upper floor of the Newton Post Office since 1987.
