Kahu Scott (Ngāti Whakaue, Ngāti Kahungunu and Ngāti Raukawa) is originally from Haumoana, Hawkes Bay.
With a background studying Architecture and Art History, Scott has found inspiration from design and architecture,
as well as culturally through ta moko (traditional Māori tattoo) and his whanau (family). He identifies as a mixed media artist
and designer and is known for his print series. In his latest work he has incorporated CNC routers (computer controlled) to
produce wooden panels. Using this technique, Scott was commissioned to create 12 carvings for Te Oro arts centre in Glen Innes.
Scott has exhibited throughout New Zealand and internationally in Portugal, Holland and Germany, with solo shows including;
Taonga Elusive (2012) Auckland. Translit, The Russian Frost Farmers (2011) Wellington. Tomorrow’s Collectors (2010) Wellington.
Rigidity & Water (2008) Black Barn, Havelock North. Kahutography (2007) South Coast Gallery, Wellington.
Planeta, Art and Spirit (2007) Lisboa, Portugal.
Kahu Scott is now based in Auckland where he works and lives
