Fatu Feu’u is an internationally recognised Samoan-New Zealand artist. He has been pivotal in shaping the interest in contemporary pacific art globally and nurturing a generation of pacific artists locally, leading to his reputation as the father of contemporary pacific art.
In this book, Fatu shares his story from wilful Samoan-village boy, to New Zealand factory-worker immigrant, to leader in his home communities and the global art world.
His thoughts on art and life are woven into an inspiring tale that helps us understand not only what drives this artist, but what’s behind his art – how the bright colours, the frangipani, ta-tatua and siapo designs create a narrative of his past, present and future.
Selected Art Works by Fatu Feu’u will be on show at the Gallery from Saturday 15th September – Saturday 22nd September
A book will be included free to any purchasers of a Fatu Feu’u artwork during this time
