 KO AU TENEI - THIS IS ME - IN MY HOOD

6 May - 29 May 2011

 Hoodies are often associated with youth culture, this exhibition, Ko Au Tenei - This is me - in my hood, presents an opportunity for young people to share something about themselves through visual media using hoodies as a platform. In a two day workshop at PATAKA lead by artists' Wayne Youle and  Wiremu Bariball  a group of young people were taught the fundamental skills of graphic design and encouraged to recognise their own uniqueness and individual talents.  I was completely stoked to be asked to help out as a textile artist.  With my favourite Artist of all time the beautiful and far too talented Wayne Youle.   Working with Wayne and Wiremu is an experience I will treasure.  Especially the opportunity to produce a piece of art working in collaboration with Wayne.
