Waqa Vuidreketi, 35, uses art to convey his message of climate change and is holding an exhibition today and tomorrow.
Mr Vuidreketi, who is a self-taught artist, said the Pacific experience with climate change contributed to his artwork.
He said art was about being original, creative and the ability to express stories in the form of art.
“I was introduced to various mediums of art while growing up by looking at my grandmother’s work but I was interested in painting,” Mr Vuidreketi said.
“My work is a journey that travels through oneself as an explorer in the complex world of art and life.”
Mr Vuidreketi said it took him three months to complete his art pieces for the exhibition.
“The weather was a challenge because the paintings had to dry and the materials are expensive,” he said.
“I plan to take my art to another level by securing a market in the future.”
This will be his first solo exhibition which starts today at the 3rd Floor, Gurbachan Singh Building, Raju Bhai Patel Street, Suva on these times; today from 4pm to 7pm; Saturday from 10am to 2pm.
