Homepage Artwork

Created by well-known New Zealand artist Shane Hansen, the artwork on this website represents the core principles of Māori Television:  Mā rātou, mā mātou, mā koutou, mā tātou.  For them, for us, for you, for all of us. 

The design not only showcases contemporary Māori visual arts, but also reflects our inclusive approach and commitment to delivering something for all New Zealanders to enjoy and be proud of. 

Shane Hansen’s bold and confident artwork is also an expression of the many facets of his identity: an on-going exploration and celebration of Māori, Danish and Scottish heritage; his pride in being a husband and father and his whimsical sense of humour.
