We talk to Kura Te Waru Rewiri about her art and background into education and the contemporary Māori art movement. Kura is acknowledged as one of Aotearoa's leading painters of contemporary Māori art. Kura attended Northland College in her teenage years where she caught the attention of Selwyn Wilson and Buck Nin. After Buck Nin had sent her to to Elam School of Fine Arts Kura became an educator of contemporary Māori art and then began exhibiting her works internationally. Kura had recently been inducted into the Massey University Hall of Fame.
