Totaea is an artist and designer living in the beautiful Bay of Plenty. Of Māori (Ngati Maru), Cook Island Māori, and English descent, Totaea enjoys bringing all his passions together in his creative process—design, culture, travel, and art. We think you’d agree that he totally succeeds!
Born in Auckland, raised in Wellington, and back to Auckland to study at the Institute of Technology, Totaea has worked in the visual arts field for over two decades. He brings a style characterised by bold, clean lines that explore Māori cultural themes. Over his practice, Totaea has developed a thoughtful contemporary (and at times, humorous!) style that speaks to our unique ‘Kiwi-ness’.
We have a large selection of Totaea’s prints available in the gallery both framed and unframed, perfect for a gift—or as a treat to yourself!
