Whanau - a new print from artist Robyn Kahukiwa

Robyn Kahukiwa is arguably Aotearoa-New Zealand's leading contemporary female maori artist.

Her tribal affiliations include Ngati Porou, Te Aitanga a Hauiti, Ngati Konohi and Te Whanau a Ruataupare. Kahukiwa has an extensive record of sell-out exhibitions over her long career. She has been active in celebrating the strength and vitality of Maori ancestry and ideas and her art has always involved reflections on maori women and of motherhood.

Robyn Kahukiwa's new June 2009 print Whanau is a bold celebration of family identity screenprinted onto beautiful handmade paper. We have many low numbered prints from this new edition from one of our most popular artists in stock this morning.

Taranaki Artist Peter Lambert - New Prints


The artist Peter Lambert has been exhibiting for over 30 years. Lambert attended evening classes in painting and drawing at the Ilam School of Fine Arts (now part of the University of Canterbury) whilst competing his BSC in Mathematics. He also studied lithography at Elam School of Fine Arts in Auckland and at Long Island University in New York. As a full-time artist living and working in Taranaki since 1982 Peter has had many years experience refining his technique and his new prints that arrived today are particularly fine examples of contemporary New Zealand printmaking. Pictured is Peter's brand new print "Waiting Around" - a hand made edition of 22 screenprints.
