Charlotte Graham

Charlotte Graham is of Scottish, Taranaki and Waikato descent - Ngati Mahuta, Ngati Tamaoho and Ngati Paoa descent. She is a prolific painter who draws on her tribal heritage to address critical issues that affect New Zealand society, indigenous land rights and healing. Graham was born in 1972. She completed a Bachelor of Maori Visual Arts Degree in 2001, Post-Graduate Diploma of Teaching in 2002, Certificate in Maori Language 2006, and Post-Graduate Diploma of Maori Visual Arts in 2008.

Graham has featured in numerous exhibitions throughout New Zealand with venues including the Sarjeant Gallery, Manawatu Museum and the Dowse Museum. She has also exhibited internationally including in Te Tataitanga at the Southwest School of Art and Craft, San Antonio, Texas and at APT8 with the Savage Klub at the Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane. She held her first solo exhibition entitled Trouble in Paradise at Oedipus Rex in 2004. In 2003, Graham was commissioned to paint a mural with Nanette Lelaulu, Manu Scott, and local school students. The work was credited with a Creative Communities Award. Graham has public artworks within Auckland and includes the Vaana Peace Mural and also the Onehunga Library Mural. In 2004 she was a Creative New Zealand Recipient.

Graham held her second solo show entitled Ngaa Karetao in 2005. The work was received favourably as it rejuvenated an endangered customary art form. In 2007, Graham travelled to Hawaii to participate and exhibit in the Indigenous Artists Gathering, Waimea, Hawaii. Her latest solo exhibition was Kaitiaki 2015 at Mangere Arts Centre. She lives in Auckland.
