Listing Details

Para Matchitt (1933 – 2021) was a New Zealand sculptor and painter, known for combining traditional Māori and modernist art forms. Matchitt was born in Tokomaru Bay in 1933 of Te Whānau-ā-Apanui, Te Whakatōhea and Ngāti Porou descent.

Matchitt attended Auckland Teachers college, then in 1957 moved to Dunedin to specialise in arts and crafts education under Gordon Tovey. It was Tovey that influenced him to develop his own art practice.

Master carver Pineamine Taiapa taught him to carve and introduced him to the Māori prophetic movements of Te Kooti. Matchitt adapted symbolism from the Te Kooti religion to create a personalised visual language that continued as a theme through his work.
