Jermaine Reihana’s work features delicate and often fluid portraits of New Zealand’s Tui, set upon a landscape of geometric patterns derived from tukutuku panels of the wharenui, native flora and fauna.
His use of wide free brush strokes, upon which he often positions the Tui is a sweet reminder of the birds movement and personality.
His colour palette often features a punchy primary, which he uses to define the structural elements within his work, upon which his painted monochrome Tui dances.
Reihana is an emerging Māori artist. He studied at Massey University School of Māori Visual Arts in Palmerston North, graduated with honours in 2012.
