Biography
Rangituhia Hollis is a digital media and animation artist.

After studying design at the Eastern Institute of Technology in 2000, Hollis went on to study a Bachelor of Visual Arts at Manukau Institute of Technology (2007), a Postgraduate Diploma in Fine Arts (2008) and a Master of Fine Arts at Elam School of Fine Arts at the University of Auckland (2009).

He has since forged a practice that incorporates references to virtual reality, gaming culture and documentary-style home videos, exploring heritage, connection, dislocation and urban Māori experiences in Aotearoa New Zealand’s postcolonial context.
