Graham Fletcher has been a practising artist since 1997 and has exhibited extensively in both New Zealand and abroad. He has works held in significant private and public collections and has also received numerous awards and grants including the Wallace Arts Trust Development Award (2010). Fletcher's work explores the critical legacy of the widespread European tradition of housing collections of Oceanic and African tribal art in domestic settings. Of particular relevance, to an artist of mixed Samoan and European heritage, is the question of how this legacy might be appropriated and subverted within a contemporary Pacific and New Zealand context.
