The Vanya Taule'alo Gallery is at the forefront of promoting contemporary art in Samoa.
Representing some major names in the Pacific art scene you can find prints and paintings by some of Samoa/New Zealand's most respected names, and the stable of artists is constantly growing including both local emerging artists and those from the Pacific region.
The gallery also stocks high quality carved handcrafts by master carver Kili Luaipolu and Pacific body adornment and jewelry works by Beau Rasmussen.
Recently Vanya has been working with siapo makers (tapa) and they have been producing wonderful hand blocked siapo and hand painted siapo. The gallery also stocks funky necklaces designed by Robert Kennedy and handmade in Bali as well as finely woven goods from the Marshall Islands.
