Traditional painter, carver and designer Faraimo Paulo of Tokelau is on a mission to record his people’s history and culture. As emigration and rising water levels from global warming threaten to erase the traditional Tokelauan lifestyle, Paulo has embarked on a mission to realistically capture the culture, stories and scenes of Tokelauan society, often using his family members as models. This exhibition at The Leo Kelly Blacktown Arts Centre represents a major survey of Faraimo Paulo’s recent work.
