This edition has been printed on 270gsm smooth cotton rag, measuring 297 x 420mm, signed and numbered on the back. They come with a protective sleeve and card backing board.
Manuha’apai Vaeatangitau is an interdisciplinary artist, practicing across the mediums of illustration, poetry, performance and music. Of Tongan descent, their practice centres the recontextualising and reimagining of the Leiti experience and its expressions. Manuha’apai’s relationship to Ancient Tonga and the modern world lay the groundwork of many of their illustrations.
