Makouri the Artist


Kia ora,

I'm Makouri Scott.

I come from Aotearoa New Zealand ... Land of the long white cloud.

I'm a photographer, painter and environmental artist who has travelled and created internationally for over 20 years. I aim to be the first professional artist in space when, as a founding 100 member, Virgin Galactic takes off in 2011. My seat is booked and I'm ready for take off.

In the meantime, I have plenty to be getting on with working predominantly in my studio in Otago New Zealand. Art is the only language that makes any real sense to me...when I'm working in the studio time stands still and I feel extremely chilled.

Being an artist enables me to be incredibly free ... I don't have to answer to anyone and I can work anywhere in the world I choose.

Kia Kaha
