Andy Leleisi’uao speaks with a distinctive visual language. His layered worlds suggest multiple mythologies and show a community populated by rainbow-headed people and Bosch-like beasts.

Leleisi’uao often paints in series and seen together, the paintings may be viewed as an extended narrative; taken individually, each painting provides an intimate view of a world that is at once alien and very familiar. Recurring motifs throughout the works provide visual touchstones for viewers and remind us of the inherent humanity of his creatures, and the universality of their struggle and endeavour within a limited existence.
