Shane Hansen's paintings combine Maori folklore and history through beautiful flowing lines on wood, glass and metal.
Dynamic, colourful and optimistic, his works embrace Maori pride and heritage like no other.
Shane studied art at high school but began his professional life as a fashion designer and then trained as a graphic designer, eventually combining these two disciplines. Shane's designs are professionally applied to plywood or glass - raw materials that he says "aren't too polished" and take on unique and unexpected qualities that add depth to his finished works.
