Brown Town Breadz, AJ Fata
Lino Print, brown paper bag Edition of 10, 2019
This print was inspired by my love for bread and my love for being Brown. I came up with this design because one day when I'm a kuia i'll have the meanest rēwena bread and run a small bakery out of my marae and call it "Brown Town Breadz". Well that's the dream.

She is way finding through vā in the dimension of now, balancing energies of ancestral narratives for future voices. she finds herself, planting her bones in plantations of taro, resting in the shade of kawakawa leaves, listening to the call of the tui bird.
With waters that flow from the WAIKATO river into OCEANIA - ajFATA a.k.a. aije has held space within her voice for story to be told in Aotearoa and London / / exploring through forms of prints/poetry/film/sound- she finds focus on work that holds honest meaning for more than just us.
she is not one, but many
she is a kete
collector of kupu cultivator of kai.
