Huia Series

Pencil on Paper

The Huia Series emerged from a need to develop a narrative using Māori design elements that would be woven into an art piece by a local Ngāi Tahu artist; for a central city development here in Ōtautahi | Christchurch. 

It featured three initial designs that sat within a large triangle pattern that represented the trees. Unfortunately the jury was hung on whether they would proceed with it, so the cheeky characters I have designed now adorn walls rather than glass in buildings. 

 

They are no less cheeky though.

 

Each piece is hand drawn by myself and can be found in the shop.
