Ana Teofilo

Ana Teofilo is a New Zealand born Samoan Visual artist who creates contemporary Pasifika art works from her hometown in Dunedin. She was the recipient of the Con Hutton Scholarship in 2015 which contributed to her Masters in Visual Arts from the Dunedin School of Art at Otago Polytechnic.

Anas practice is unique in that she merges her Samoan heritage and the Western influence to create eye-catching works with polyneasian patterns that are carved into painted board and then decorated with glue dots that are opaque but reflect the base and surrounding colours to enhance the three dimensional effects of the carving to form striking artworks. She works with all sorts of sizes & shaped boards from circles, squares to frangipani shapes.The uniqueness and strength of her paintings brings a breath of fresh air to the Pasifika genre of art in New Zealand.
