Fatu Feuíu is internationally renowned as a Pacific painter, printmaker and sculptor. His images always convey an intense response to his upbringing in Samoa and the culture of its people.
The landscape of Samoa informs Feuíuís paintings and fills them with visual conversations about both the past and the present. Here, there are two images alluded to, firstly a hot and densely forested bush scene as well as the inter-mixing of colours within an ocean reef.
