This Auckland Pride Festival MAP Project is showcasing the work of artist Huriana Kopeke-Te Aho on the central location at 1 Ponsonby Road as Studio One Toi Tū continues to provide a space for artists and art lovers during the seismic strengthening renovations.

Huriana Kopeke-Te Aho (Tūhoe, Ngāti Porou, Rongowhakaata, Te Āti Haunuia- Pāpārangi, Ngāti Kahungunu, Ngāi Tahu, Fale’ula) is a self-taught artist and illustrator whose work is primarily influenced by their Māori whakapapa, takatāpui identity, and political beliefs.

At the centre of their artistic practice is a deep and fierce aroha/alofa for their people, and they aim to create imagery that speaks to their communities' political and social struggles.
