Limited Edition 1/25
A keen historian, active participance in contemporary culture is at the core of Tuffery’s multi- disciplinary art practice, where he holds a deep commitment not just to the peoples of the Paci c but to the environment. His artwork is curated within major international exhibitions and public collections and has quali ed him to undertake numerous residencies throughout the USA, Europe, United Kingdom, Asia, India and Australia.
Our collaboration is lead by our mutual passion for conservation and the environment with each new laser etched board being paired with a cause.
"These new collaborative works on recycled oak wine barrel boards are based on the shared philosophy and principles of the Kaitiaki from throughout the South Paci c. The symbolisms aren’t just an aesthetic, they narrate - by design - the oldest forms and thinking from our Ali’i, a signal to us that the kauapa hasn’t changed and that collectively through the social responsibility we remain the guardians of our environment."
