Wayne Youle, 'Flauntatiousness'

Wayne Youle has developed an Art Car for SCAPE 7.


Fast and loud, Wayne Youle’s work is literally on the move. This mobile artwork presents the artists of SCAPE 7 as ‘brands’ in the manner of high performance motor-racing teams. Emblazoned alongside are sponsor logos and tongue in cheek comments on the current environment.

Wayne Youle (Ngapuhi, Ngati Whakaeke, Ngati Pakeha) works across traditional media including painting, sculpture, photography and print-making, seeking to forge connections between each and the various processes and strategies associated with design and popular culture. Youle’s work looks to communicate directly with its audience, engaging us in open dialogue around a range of social and cultural issues, in particular Maori/Pakeha relationships.
