Regionalism by Ema Tavola

Artwork Detail Request a print

Ema Tavola’s Colour Me Fiji series reinterprets the traditional Fijian sulu as being articles of urban south Auckland streetwear that riff on the mixture of traditional visual symbols on-sourced in Fiji. Rather than taking an ironic touristical approach, she turns the familiar into the culturally affirming by locating their relevance within a community.
