Paratene (Para) Matchitt (Te Whānau-ā-Apanui, Ngāti Porou) has been a leading figure in Māori contemporary art since the 1960s. He has worked in painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture and carving. His massive wooden sculptural works lining Wellington's City to Sea Bridge are among New Zealand's highest-profile artworks. This 2011 video interview with Matchitt coincided with a retrospective exhibition of his work at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa in Wellington.
