Fatu Feu’u - do you like his art?




Fatu Feu’u is a New Zealand based Samoan artist.  He came to New Zealand when he was 20.  Like many other artists I admire, his work is sometimes criticised as being too “accessible” – since when is people being able to appreciate an artwork a bad thing?  




He not only paints, but makes prints, sculpts and has even made pots and designed rugs.



His work is inspired by Samoan motifs such as tapa cloth, tattoo, weaving and often the frangipani flower.

  2. The artwork is super. It reminds me of the Mexican tiles.
