Fatu Feu'u Book Launch Tomorrow, Auckland

Join Fatu Feu’u and writer Shona Jennings for the Book Launch of
 Tuesday 18 September 2012, 5.30–7.30pm

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 willful 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 Warwick Henderson Gallery in Parnell from Saturday 15-22 September. 

 If you would like to order a copy of Fatu Feu’u On Life & Art
please phone Warwick Henderson Gallery on 09 3097513
or you are welcome to email us at info@warwickhenderson.co.nz
