Fa’amalea Heads by Andy Leleisi'uao

Artwork Detail

The Fa'amalea Heads paintings were shown in the 2008 exhibition: The Angipanis of the Abanimals. Andy Leleisiu'ao is renowned for his invention of present and future visual worlds based on the intersection of Samoan culture with myth, technology and human relationships. By imagining worlds that are yet to exist, he sets up powerfully emotional encounters that question how we relate to each other. As a profoundly humanist artist, Leleisi'uao here compares our appearance to others as being like a prison for the imagination.
