Artist James Waititi, draws on their traditional Maori nautical knot tying skills to create these unique body adornment pieces.
Born 24.08.1990 (Opotiki)
Maori (Te Whanau a Apanui, Te Rarawa, Ngapuhi)
with French Canadian, English, Scottish, American, Norwegian descent.
With an obsession with ancient Maori stories, James is developing an understanding of a time when narratives of humankind were believed to have lived alongside the gods.
James was introduced to these stories through paintings, carvings, weaving and literature at a very young age and continues to find modern methods of storytelling to share this understanding with others; be it through regalia, performance, sound and digital media.
