Luana Asiata is a London based artist with a background in Fine Arts and Graphic Design. She creates abstract interpretations through intimate drawings and paint studies that focus on identity and belonging, triggered by memories from her travels, nature and people. Layering bold colours, patterns and shapes she creates a visceral, tactile scene that feels modern and familiar. 


She came Runner-Up in the 'Spotted' Awards at  Top Drawer S/S 2020, the UK's leading international design-led event which showcases new up and coming designers to watch.


She did a pop-up event at West Elm (London) just before lockdown and has organised and exhibited pop-up events in Herne Hill and Kensington (Barkers Building), exhibited at Londons largest illustration fair 'House of Illustration' in Kings Cross, and exhibited/sold works at The Art Number 23 Gallery in Bermondsey. She is part of ‘Bainbridge Print Studios’ and an all female art collective ‘The Studio Circle’. 

Luana hails from the land of the long white cloud (NZ) and studied at Elam School of Fine Arts. She works from her studio in South London and regularly travels to Dungarvan, a picturesque town in Ireland where her husbands family are from, and a place that is a constant source of inspiration in
her work.
