Based in Auckland Genre Visual Art

John Vea

John Vea is an Auckland based artist working with sculpture, video and performance art. John gained a Bachelor of Visual Arts at Auckland University of Technology in 2009, where he is now enrolled in a Postgraduate Diploma of Art and Design. 

Vea works with tropes of migration and gentrification within the Australasian Landscape. By enacting stories that have been collected through everyday interactions with people, both in his home community and abroad with a journalistic sensibility he offers a sometimes humorous and always powerfully symbolic emic viewpoint to the Western meta narrative.
