Tongan born Tevita attended to a local primary school, then Auckland Boys Grammar before graduating with a BFA from the National Art School in Sydney Australia. Returning to Tonga he established Seleka, an contemporary art group to assist underprivileged youth through various art making and especially painting projects. His own work is heavily influenced by his interests in artists Basquiat and Picasso and he experiments with mixed media to portray people and events that are of interest and importance to him. While here he will tutor free workshops for youth on Saturday 23 September. His visit to Northart, his exhibition and the workshops have been made possible through a grant from Creative Communities, Auckland.
