Shane Hansen likes a strong, clean line. His creations spring from a world of bold colours and optimistic clarity, a pop-art invitation to a feel-good New Zealand celebration. Shane is of Maori, Chinese, Danish and Scottish descent, which is reflected in his art as he navigates his way on a journey of cultural discovery and self acceptance. He describes his work as his therapy, kai for the mind and soul.

In 2010 Shane was selected along with 5 other Maori artists to provide authentic Maori designs to be used for the Rugby World Cup 2011. His designs are being marketed and sold worldwide in the build-up to and during the RWC 2011. He sees this as an amazing opportunity to promote Aotearoa and his Maori heritage to a global audience.

"An artist is what I am. Its taken me a few years to get here, but now I have arrived. My journey has just begun and I want others to come with me. I love doing what I do, I love being who I am. My family is my life and so is my art."
