Lalovai Peseta, Béatrice Camallonga, Francis Pesamino, Jeffry Feeger, and Yvonne C Neth now have their works on display in a virtual gallery organised by the Pacific Islands Society.
These exceptionally talented young artists each bring unique style and interpretation to their work.
Representing countries and communities throughout Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, New Caledonia, Samoa, and the Federated States of Micronesia—their works are a very real snapshot of the emotional landscape of the Pacific.
Drawing inspiration from traditional carving, to tatau design, to bleeding edge visual art techniques, these emerging artists brilliantly showcase the dynamic and creative talent coming out of the Pacific.
Over the next year, these five artists will team up with the Pacific Islands Society to celebrate and promote their work across the region and the world.
The Society aims to facilitate a deeper awareness and appreciation for the abundant artistic talent in the Pacific Islands region by helping promote emerging artists, providing professional development opportunities, and putting on a roster of showcase events with its global partners.
