Shane Cotton (Ngati Rangi, Ngati Hine, Te Uri Taniwha) is one of a small group of prominent artists of dual Maori and Pakeha descent. Trained within a European art school tradition, Cottons work explores aspects of his bi-cultural heritage and by extension, examines the nature of New Zealand cultural identity.
