Art, Water, Salt, Surf, Repeat
Darren Tautari grew up surfing coastal Dunedin/Otago. Spending countless hours in the ocean it wasn't long before Darren decided to blend his two greatest passions in life, the ocean and art.
After his first solo painting exhibition in 2008 was a sell-out, Darren hasn't looked back since. Across the past 10 years Darren has sucessfully worked in Acrylic Painting, Oil Painting, Sculpture, Tattooing, Textiles and Photography.
Darren works from his beach side studio in Kakanui, Waitaki - either on or in the water daily.
In his career to date Tautari has achieved a number of sell-out shows around New Zealand, and continues to commission works nationally and internationally including Canada, Singapore, United Kingdom to name a few.
