About Dr Rangihiroa Panoho

Artist and writer passionate about the arts. I was born in Pāpua New Guinea, lived in Sydney briefly and have spent much of my life researching my Māori and Polynesian heritage in the Asia Pacific region. I have a Doctorate in Art History but began my professional training with a year at Elam School of Fine Arts, Auckland. My work as a Curator, as an educator and as an art historian feeds into my visual practice.
