About the design: 'My picture tells of the earth, plants and sky all connected by the water that we must all take care of. Respecting the water will in turn help us all to flourish. The hair that runs through the middle represents mana, your life source/energy. In the Pacific your head is considered tapu, sacred. Your hair is an extension of that. Life is sacred. The four stars represent Ahmaud Arbury, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and Tony McDade. I see that the sky is filled with stars. 88 black lives were killed/murdered in the US by police so far this year. Last year, 235. All of these lives were sacred. I stand with Black Lives Matter' - Momoe Tasker (English / Samoan-Chinese)

Momoe is a multifaceted artist of Samoan-Chinese and English cultural heritage. Born in Taitoko/Levin, raised in London, her work reflects her own experiences and investigates the marginalisation of women of colour, feminism, abuse, decolonisation and cultural identity through hand block printing/paint/textiles and live performance as vocalist/shared songwriter in GUTTS (queer sax punx band) and drummer in IMMIGRANTI (qtbipoc punx band). Through creative activism Momoe aims to break silence and strengthen solidarity within overlooked communities.
