‘Toi-ariki, te Toi-uru-tapu, te Toi-uru-rangi, te Toi-uru-roa’

‘Art of the Gods, all sacredness, heavenly origin, all embracing-creation’

Toiariki’s founding Artist Richard Francis currently resides in Rotorua working full time as a Contemporary Maori Artist and Educator, specializing in Moko (Maori Indeginous Skin Art).

He is also keenly concerned with the re-development of the symbolism and information attached to Moko designs, mostly focusing on these issues as they relate to his affiliated Iwi.

His work as a practicing tā moko artist is only one of many roles that he fulfils as a visual artist, carver, graphic designer, researcher of whakapapa, and tribal history. He is also a Kapa Haka performer for the Hikuwai Cultural Kapahaka Group.
