  • Drawing from his French Tahitian ancestry, Heath Wilkes has re created this illustrative style print taken from an old set of Tahitian Stamps.

    Heath Wilkes is of Tahitian and European heritage. One set of Grandparents from Tahiti (where family still live) and the other from England. Trips to French Polynesia are frequent.

    Born in Auckland in the summer of  ’77, he spent much of his childhood swimming and surfing Piha on New Zealand’s Wild West Coast. In his late teens, he undertook a Bachelor of Design, Majoring in Visual Communication. 

    Working in Advertising for 19 years, Heath transitioned his design agency to an all purpose, specialist art printing & art services business. Not content with working only to help other artists achieve their visions, Heath produces his own work.

    Heath’s contemporary Polynesian works are generally inspired from objects and images relating to French Polynesia and his heritage, where he can modernise in his own form, a take on the old ways of French Polynesian life, mixing with a modern aesthetics from the new world.
