Shane Hansen likes a strong, clean line. His creations spring from a world of bold colours and optimistic clarity, a pop-art invitation to a feel-good New Zealand celebration. Shane is of Maori, Chinese, Danish and Scottish descent, which is reflected in his art as he navigates his way on a journey of cultural discovery and self acceptance. He describes his work as his therapy, kai for the mind and soul.
‘My mahi is my way of connecting with those around me. I am lifted by the positivity that comes from those wanting to connect with myself and my mahi.’
