Dion Hitchens

Dion creates contemporary art experiences, sharing a lineage of thought that is informed from both New Zealand Maori and Buddhist philosophy. These ideas explore the interconnectedness of all things (Whakapapa). His intent is that through his art experiences, he inspires growth, sharing and stronger connections to our environment, our organisations and to one another. He recently completed work with Fonterra assisting them with the alignment of their company values to cultural stories, through the creation of a touch stone for their foyer. His work can be found in major collections around the country including Te Papa, Waikato Museum and Auckland City Art Gallery. He also has public works with Auckland and Hamilton City Council. He is interested in how the values from the past can inform our actions for the future. He is of Tuhoe, Ngati Porou, (New Zealand Maori), Chinese, English and Scottish descent. A global citizen with a tribal view.
