Tuffery’s journey is an open and expansive one, its wonder and revelations shared generously, as a gift, in his art. It illuminates the sea around him, showing us aspects of our world, our society and our lives that would otherwise remain unseen.

Michel Tuffery is a New Zealand based artist of Samoan, Rarotongan and Mahoi Tahitian heritage.

His art exceeds the boundaries of contemporary media, collaborating on site specific media installations that traverse cultural boundaries and defy concrete categorisation. His woodcuts, lithographs, drawings, paintings on tapa cloth and canvas, sculpture, emblematic carvings and performance art are the artistic offerings of a keen historian and active participator in contemporary culture.
