The Tapa Series
In late december 2020 I had the chance to create a special commission for a friend to give his parents for christmas. During our discussion of what he wanted it soon became shockingly clear that he had no idea and just wanted something 'cool and legit'. So I took this as a chance to explore creating a 'tapa cloth inspired piece' that I had floating in my head for a couple of months. I opted for something that incorporated his tongan heritage and his parents' religious background. 
It was through this commission that I fell in love with this style of art that I decided to create this 3 piece series.

Aski is an emerging artist based in Wellington city. She has recently started to share her work on instagram and is slowly starting to expand her platforms into different stores and galleries around New Zealand. Aski is currently exploring art that reflects her Maori and Pacific heritage in the form of hand drawn patterns and motifs as a means to reconnect to her whakapapa and her pacific roots.
