Portrait of Luine's resident children

 Best known for his large-scale murals, Guido van Helten is an Australian artist whose breathtaking monochrome portraits grace walls around the world. 
Working in a photorealistic style, this highly talented artist creates delicate and elegant pieces that exude an overall melancholy atmosphere and deeply sentimental quality. 
His work is often inspired by photographic reference materials that are culturally significant to the region in which he works. The artist always pays close attention to detail and tries to incorporate specific local elements into his pieces.
For this Ono'u 8th edition, Guido chose to reproduce the portrait of Luine's resident children, a moment captured during an outing supervised by the Traditional Sailing Dugout School to illustrate the transmission of our country's rich cultural heritage.
