Manuha’apai Vaeatangitau is an interdisciplinary artist, practicing across the mediums of illustration, poetry, performance and music. Of Tongan descent, their practice centres the re-contextualising and re imagining of the Leiti experience and its expressions. Manuha’apai’s relationship to Ancient Tonga and the modern world lay the groundwork of many of their illustrations.
