Kauri Hawkins (Ngāi Tāmanuhiri, Rongowhakaata, Ngāti Porou, Ngāti Kahungungu ki Wairoa) defines his work as trans-customary, combining Māori and European art concepts. His work reflects his own life, and those of other Māori, who walk among the Māori, Pacific and Pākehā worlds and face the issues of the 21st Century. Not being a fluent speaker of the language of his people, Kauri communicates through his hands.
