Tony Brown


ARTIST PROFILE
Throughout Tony Brown’s practice, the artist has used his Maori heritage alongside a keen interest in photography, particularly of Maori people at work and leisure in our society. Inspiration for his drawn and painted works incorporates elements of Maori culture. Tony currently combines photo-realism with references to traditional Maori art forms including, whakairo (carving) and ta moko (traditional Maori tattoo) in his practice, which typically culminate as highly rendered drawings or paintings. They are an exploration of the artist’s own identity, explaining that the subjects are “more about me being Maori and through photography and painting I’m learning more about who I am.”

Tony graduated in 2004 with a Bachelor of Visual Arts, from The University of Auckland, through Manukau School of Visual Arts majoring in Painting. He has completed numerous art commissions and has been finalist in Adam Portraiture Award in 2010 and 2016. Tony is a resident artist at Corban Estate Arts Centre where he currently works and lives in West Auckland.
