Maiangi Waitai

Painting has always been my main creative love.

I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Whanganui School of Arts 1999 majoring in painting and continued to explore it, often in mixed medium on canvas, board, paper, fabric, walls, suitcases, furniture, ceramics, collage books and packaged 'toys' - the latter under the name 'Zachary Airflow'.

I have exhibited throughout New Zealand and my work is held in public and private collections. Alongside private commissions and my other main creative endeavour making clothing, jewellery and accessories for my label 'Who is Dead Martin?'. I work as a kindergarten teacher in Wellington at TePapa Tongarewa.
