Ina Arraoui is a contemporary print artist with a master’s degree in Cultural Anthropology and Art History. She is passionate about promoting printmaking in Aotearoa (NZ) and as a platform for community building and cross-cultural exchange. Her printmaking practice combines traditional woodcut techniques with aerosol stencils to produce bold and engaging images that explore themes of cultural history and identity through objects as vessels of memory and experience.
