Greg Semu has stated about his art:

‘The theme that runs strongly through my work is cultural displacement, colonial impact on indigenous cultures particularly Pacific Islands and Religious Christian iconography's mutation of tribal and so called primitive icons. Mostly classified as an 'art' photographer, am comfortable with the commercial world. Photography is a visual language often used to manipulate certain masses of people’s, cultures & identities.’
