ARTIST COLLECTION 2021
About the Project
This is our first ever Artist Collection here at Zeenya HQ. We are so proud to have welcomed three exceptional artists on board for this project.
Two years ago, we connected with Otis Frizzell and Diya Dasgupta in the hopes of bringing an Artist Collection to life one day. This year we decided to go for it.
Let's be honest, 2020 saw a lot of change in the world, and we wanted to put our money where our mouths are to do more to support indigenous artists of New Zealand. We put the call out in May for talented Māori artists to submit either a completed design or their portfolio of work to be considered for this project. We were blown away by the talent and support of those that submitted to be part of this. A massive thank you to everyone who got involved.
Our judging panel had a huge job ahead of them, and narrowed it down to 5 finalists and one overall winner. Seriously, you'll want to check out these amazing finalists below.
The Collection is now complete with Steve Maddock (our overall winner) being chosen to be part of this project.
These pieces will be available from Wednesday the 8th of December from 7pm. The collection will only be produced in our Full Length NZ Made style, and a matching brand new Scoop Crop.
