An Element of the Universal

“These pictures start speaking to you once you start looking at them” is what one amazed member of the Te Kura Kaupapa Maori O Nga Mokopuna school’s Parents Association said shortly after seeing OUBEYS paintings for the first time.


It’s the universal language of OUBEYs paintings that makes them understandable to everybody without any need for explanation. This has been proven again and again at each stopover of the Global Encounter Tour in widely different places across the world, so far.

Aotearoa New Zealand promises to be a very special affirmation of this universal quality in OUBEYs art. Click here to go to full background report on the tour’s New Zealand stopover.
