E nga mana, e nga waka, e nga iwi. Tihei Mauri ora!

The artistic career of Jamie Boynton first emerged from the renowned school of Visual Communications and Design in Wellington, New Zealand. From there Jamie launched his career as an Illustrator and Graphic Artist in 1995. Over the years he has steadily developed a style that reflects his artistic passion for the European Renaissance, Pop Art, indigenous and contemporary cultures, and both traditional and contemporary Maori art. Jamie identifies his whanau (family) and the natural environment as his primary source of inspiration.

Jamie’s life and work has been recorded as the subject of two television documentaries. The first was part of a series (The New Migration) sharing the stories of young Maori who have successfully left the city to return to their tribal homelands. The second documentary (Te Kete Aronui) focused on Jamie’s practice as a contemporary Maori artist.

From delicate illustrations to stunning glass carvings and design, Jamies’ art shows a tremendous level of proficiency across a wide spectrum of artistic disciplines. It is this versatility that has allowed Jamie to carve out a successful career as one of this countrys’ leading contemporary Maori artists. He is committed to using his artistic skills as a vehicle to influence positive social change…

“I see art as a powerful tool with which we can project clear visions, illuminating pathways for the future development of our culture and collective society.”

Together, Jamie and his wife Tina, formed the business partnership JamiesArt. Founded on the principle of sustainability, JamiesArt uniquely combines their skills and knowledge in Energy Medicine, Strategic Development, Art and Design. Their highest vision is to create a better world, utilising the arts to ignite a soulful re-connection of people, to one another and the environment.

Jamie and Tina are currently working on their latest project. They have received sponsorship from Creative New Zealand (Te Waka Toi), to generate a major new exhibition series, titled Mauri Ora – Breath of Life. Mauri Ora is a synthesis of wisdom gathered from scientific disciplines, philosophies and religions. It presents the story of creation as an indigenous metaphor, modelling the universal process of creation and, providing the landscape for a profound artistic experience (see more info).

Jamie and Tina have two beautiful girls and currently live within the small rural community of Opotiki, in the Eastern Bay of Plenty, Aotearoa/New Zealand.

Awards:
Highly Commended 2009 Molly Morpeth Canaday Art Award for painting and drawing: “Te Oho”

Merit Award at the 2008 Combined Bay of Plenty Art Societies Exhibition: “Te Ahuatanga Print”
