Tahiti Tahiti Art
Australian street artist Fintan Magee has been in Papeete, Tahiti for two weeks, completing a five-storey project in collaboration with the Tahitian Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Tourism. The project, which is part of an organisation promoting public art on the island, was curated by the Polynesian Museum of Contemporary Art and Culture (POMAC), the organisation responsible for the search for the capital of French Polynesia, as well as a number of other local artists.
The study focuses on the 1880s, when the island first became an official French colony and became welcoming and accessible to foreign travellers, enjoying the amenities and security of a modern colonial area. It consists of works by artists who have spent time in Tahiti over the past year, inspired by their own experiences and those of others. On 29 June 1880 Tahiti officially became a "French colony" (one Establissement Francais). But under British pressure, the French left it as a protectorate to those who continued to resist during Gauguin's rule.
Moreover, Papeete, the capital of Tahiti, was not the tropical paradise it might have been in the past, or the exotic and mysterious city that great travelers like the legendary Captain Cook found. The Polynesian island had a reputation as a tourist destination, a place to visit, but not as a destination for tourists. The large exhibition Universal, in which the products of the colony and a large exhibition of photographs encouraged immigration to Tahiti, appeared in Paris in the 1880s, in New York in 1890 and in London in 1900. In the 1960s, when tourism began, Bora Bora was one of the most popular destinations in North America and the world, becoming a destination for honeymoons, attractions and festivals. However, it was only in the 1990s that genuine organised tourism took hold, with the introduction of guided tours and other forms of tourism, such as the "Tahiti Tour."
In 1891 Gauguin left France and moved to Tahiti, which turned out to be a paradise untouched by European social morality. His first trip to the island in July 1892 was not well received and he returned to France in 1893. In July 1895, France left Tahitti for the last time and, disappointed by the response to his Tahiti paintings, the artist set off on his second journey, this time with his wife and two children, but without a painting of the tropical island and without knowledge of its history or culture. In 1901, he returned from the Pacific and settled in Papeete, where he died, leaving behind a work of dazzling beauty.
In 1946 he became a member of the society, which included Tahiti, Tuamotu, Marquesas, Gambians and the Australs. In the 18th century, the island was created as the origin of encounters and representations.
To get a clear picture of what the island represents, take a look at some Tahiti art murals, you can read more about it here. That's not the whole story, we have many other "Tahiti" pictures that show even more of the islands. It is formed as a figure of 8 and divided into two parts, one in the middle and one left and right.
The Pacific Islands Art was founded in 1958 in Papeete, Tahiti, and after facing some financial problems in Tahati, they decided to move the business to Fiji and make it the centre of production. The first group of paintings created during their two-year stay were begged in the streets of Tahiti, which are recorded in the inventory "Paysage Papesage."
I would also like to see Paul Gauguin's work in Tahiti, where it can be seen, if only as a replica. If you've bitten the bora bora beetle and want to visit it, check out these masterpieces for yourself, but I'm looking forward to it.
Most visitors use Tahiti only as a springboard to other islands, but it is worth taking a tour and there are several ways to get a picture of it that will give you the desired results. In fact, visiting the hotel for a holiday or picnic requires a certain amount of planning before you get confused by the overwhelming possibilities.
The exciting mix of discovery and art workshops is inspired by Tahiti's history, history and culture, as well as its cultural heritage. They will also be international artists who, on their travels through the islands, leave permanent murals and footprints and share them with the local population and local writers who express their Polynesian identity.
Te Bourao II is one of nine paintings that Paul Gauguin created in Tahiti and sent back to Paris. The oil on canvas painted in Tahiti in 1897 is a legacy that outlines a time when the artist was tormented by several torments. Wiley's exhibition, "Tahiti Kehinde Wiley," is his first show in Paris since 2016 and opens on May 18 at the Templon Gallery.
