This an exploration of a new floral motif as well as the contrast of alternating dark and light. Faleata Ualesi (Sāmoa) is a self-taught artist who works full-time as an English Teacher at Tangaroa College in Ōtara, South Auckland. His large-scale canvas works centralise motifs commonly found in Sāmoan siapo (bark cloth) but transform the usually linear, two-dimensional design vocabulary into pulsing, monochromatic almost optical illusion-like statements. Utilising black permanent marker pen, these bold works almost vibrate off the canvas. Ema Tavola, Vunilagi Vou
