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.
Tamati, my son, working with Wayne Youle. Tamati's first exhibition.
My Hoody. Olivia Giles-Granny Styles
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.
