Moana Fresh is the smallest shop in Avondale if not Aotearoa. We represent 16 Pacific and Maori artists making a range of hot art and accessories. There is something for everyone here and we aim to make collecting and supporting local art and artists affordable and accessible. Our line up includes sculpture, prints, handmade ceramics, jewellery, coconut soap and hair accessories.
Ahilapalapa Rands and Vaimaila Urale are the two creatives behind Moana Fresh who have been working together for over 12 years making art, curating exhibitions, and presenting interactive public art projects. At the essence of our work is highlighting our Moana/Pacific heritage. Vaimaila was born in Samoa and Ahilapalapa has Hawai’i, Fijian, Samoan and Scottish heritage. Our kaupapa has always been grounded in raising the representation of Pacific artists in public and contemporary arts spaces.
