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.
