Date of birth
A painter, curator and arts manager of Māori and Fijian descent, Margaret Aull’s practice harnesses material and sculptural mark-making as a way of expressing her heritage.

After studying Māori and Pacific arts at Te Wānanga o Aotearoa, Aull completed a Bachelor of Media Arts at Waikato Institute of Technology in 2008. Her Master of Fine Arts, completed at Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design, investigated the notion of tapu/tabu (sacredness) in relation to objects as visual representations of ancestors and gods.

Aull was recently appointed to Te Ātinga, which serves an advocacy role for Māori art, and is also part of The Veiqia Project, a creative research project investigating the practice of Fijian female tattooing.
