Fatu Feu'u – "On Life & Art" Book Launch and Selected Works

Published by Little Island Press

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
If you would like to order a copy of Fatu Feu’u “On Life & Art” please phone the Gallery on 09 3097513 or you are welcome to email us at

About The Author

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
