The forms of artistic expression continue to evolve with mutations in society and technological open ups. Artists perpetuate search of new horizons initiated by their ancestors who crossed oceans in pursuit of a dream.
In recent decades, due to foreign influence art has ceased to be associated with the sacred and the cultural, but since then the place went to an art that gives more importance to tradition and its rich and varied culture. WAISILIVA endeavors to present the best parts of this inspiration... Because of its geographic position and exceptional landscapes Pacific contemporary art in Fiji develops independently of the rest of the creative movement.
'WAISILIVA' is the last born Fiji Art group, with the principal focus on representation of Pacific Contemporary Artists, to organize exhibitions, artistic events and workshops. Allowing artists to be better represented on Fiji's Art and international Art markets, 'Waisiliva' is the fruit of the efforts of several members managing the group.
Professional and senior artists sharing diversity of objectives & ideas whilst maintaining common goals.
Inspired by the spirit of cohesion and harmony which is the nature of Leleuvia island, several exhibitions have been hosted on Leleuvia in 2014, also two off-island exhibitions, one in Suva and one show in Sydney, Australia, as part of the Mua Voyage.
Leleuvia Island Resort has facilitated artists by providing a large exhibition bure, an Art gallery, and a structure for supervised workshops.
