Mostly self-taught, John Pule is regarded as one of the Pacific’s most significant artists.

Issue information

Born in the village of Liku, Niue, John Pule moved with his family to New Zealand in 1964, at the age of two. The painter, printmaker, novelist and poet has been at the forefront of New Zealand contemporary art since he began painting in the early 1990s. Pule uses his art to explore his identity as a Niuean living in Aotearoa, migration and colonialism, and the history and mythology of his homeland.

This stamp issue celebrated four paintings from Pule’s recent series of dream-like, technicolour works that incorporate towering plants and small human figures.
