Artist bio

Sheyne Tuffery is a Wellington-based multimedia visual artist whose primary mediums are painting, animation and printmaking. His prints and paintings often envisage Polynesia as a futuristic urban utopia; with the Samoan fale as the symbolic archetype for skyscrapers, apartment housing and rocket ships (vaka). These works reflect Tuffery’s research into his Samoan heritage and symbolism, his travel wanderlust and his taste for big overseas cities. They also reveal ongoing influences of fantasy, comics, and cartoons which add a sense of immediacy and humour to his subject matter.
