AFTER YEARS OF PLANNING AND PREPARATION, THE DAY HAS FINALLY ARRIVED. WE ARE VERY PROUD TO PRESENT KĀTAKÍ STUDIO TO THE PUBLIC. PREPARE YOURSELF FOR A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE FULL OF DISCOVERY AND IMAGINATION.


THE DIFFERENT MEDIUMS, STYLES AND THEMES OF THE ARTWORKS, COMBINED WITH THE DIVERSE CAREERS OF THE ARTISTS THEMSELVES, WILL GIVE GUESTS A GLIMPSE INTO A COMPLETELY NEW AND BREATH-TAKING WORLD OF CULTURE. WE HOPE TO PROVIDE YOU A PEEK INTO THE BEAUTIFUL WORLD OF CONTEMPORARY ART AND ENCOURAGE YOUR OWN INSPIRATION TO CREATE ART.


THE WORD "KĀTAKÍ" COMES FROM THE MĀORI LANGUAGE (TE REO MĀORI) AND MEANS TOLERANCE. A TERM SO RICH IN CONTENT, HISTORY AND EMOTION THAT IT FINALLY LED TO THE NAMING OF THIS SHOP FOR ABSTRACT AND CONTEMPORARY ART.

IN A WORLD WHERE PEOPLE ARE GETTING COLDER AND COLDER, CONFLICTS MORE AND MORE HEATED AND CO-EXISTENCE MORE AND MORE GLOOMY, IT IS ULTIMATELY TOLERANCE THAT RUNS LIKE A THREAD THROUGH EVERY STROKE, EVERY SHAPE, EVERY COLOUR AND EVERY ONE OF OUR PAINTINGS.

YOU COULD SAY THAT WE SELL WORKS OF ART

... THAT ARE "DRAWN BY LIFE".

IT IS TOLERANCE THAT THIS SHOP IS MEANT TO TEACH IN ORDER TO MAKE THE WORLD A SLIGHTLY MORE HARMONIOUS PLACE. OUR ART IS MEANT TO BRING TOGETHER WHAT BELONGS TOGETHER: PEOPLE.

PEOPLE OF DIFFERENT OPINIONS, DIFFERENT RELIGIONS, DIFFERENT SKIN COLOURS, DIFFERENT GENDERS, DIFFERENT LIFE MODELS, DIFFERENT INTERESTS AND LIFE GOALS - BECAUSE IN THE END THEY ARE ALL ONE THING: HUMAN BEINGS.

JUST LIKE EVERY LINE, EVERY DOT, EVERY SPLASH OF COLOUR HARMONIZES WITH EACH OTHER DESPITE ALL THE DIFFERENCES IN OUR PICTURES, THAT‘S HOW WE WANT PEOPLE TO BE.

KĀTAKI - ART THAT CONNECTS

THANK YOU FOR VISITING AND HAVE FUN DISCOVERING KĀTAKÍ STUDIO!
