Darcy Nicholas: taking Māori art to the world

From Nine To Noon, 10:05 am on 8 November 2021

Taranaki born, Darcy Nicholas (Te Āti Awa, Ngāi Te Rangi, Taranaki, Ngāti Ruanui and Ngāti Hauā) has been at large in Aotearoa's and the international arts scene since the 1960's.

Once a member of the police force, always a painter and sculptor, and a senior figure in the contemporary Māori art scene, Darcy is artist, arts advocate and has launched galleries and careers. He's worked in an arts advisory capacity under Muldoon, and in Zimbabwe under Mugabe. Today Darcy's work is held in private collections around the globe.  Darcy Nicholas has an exhibition called Land of My Ancestors as part of Artweek which runs until Sunday.
