The awards are given to the top 60 art students that demonstrate outstanding creativity, imagination, and commitment to the visual arts. Award-winning students are honoured for their creative Mahi at an evening gala event at Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki on Thursday 8 September.

Brief breakdown of the themes they are working with:

  • Isaiah is exploring the influence and impact colonisation is currently having on the Pacific
  • Sebastyen is exploring the idea of the Va (the space between) people, place, and time; focusing specifically on Samoan tatau and artifacts.
  • Kade is investigating his connection to the Chinese gold miners that lived and worked in Arrowtown in the 1870's.
