Born and raised in South Auckland where I trained and studied performing arts (Dance), I moved back home to Tai Tokerau where I re-discovered a once dormant love for visual arts.
My family has always been a major influence of my practice since I was old enough to translate my ideas and dreams using pencil and paper.
I see my artwork as stories of the past and the present in which the vocab is freeze frames and imagery of what I have seen throughout my life.
Each piece takes me on a journey through my own experiences particularly with Maori Culture and Hiphop Culture.
But I like to keep an open mind and experiment with subjects of all sorts.
Many of my works are experimental and drive me to innovate with different ideas and mediums.
I try to incorporate my own experiences as Maori and as a bboy, a combination that I have yet to see in the art work of others.
As each body of work progresses, I am usually inspired by what I learn through the creative and design processes to further develop my work, or to make the next project better than the last.
