          Oceania is vast, Oceania is expanding, Oceania is hospitable and generous, Oceania is humanity rising from the depths of brine and regions of fire deeper still, Oceania is us. We are the sea, we are the ocean, we must wake up to this ancient truth and together use it to overturn all hegemonic views that aim ultimately to confine us again, physically and psychologically, in the tiny spaces which we have resisted accepting as our sole appointed place, and from which we have recently liberated ourselves. We must not allow anyone to belittle us again, and take away our freedom.

--Epeli Hau'ofa.

This is just a small collection of art pieces seen around the site. It randomly shows deviations from the featured folder of our favourites. Feel free to visit the artists' pages and give them some love!




Hello and welcome to Pasifika, a group for Pacific Islanders. Since there aren't that many who come on deviantART, we think it would be a great way to rally those who are already on and create a mini-community. We have also created a chatroom on dAmn (#Pasifika) for instant conversations between Islanders.

Our main aim is to support all recognized Pacific Island groups and countries. We plan to create a vibrant congregation of Pacific Islanders to interact with the online community of deviantART.

If you'd like to join the group, please send us a note letting us know where you're from, or refer to the list below and request to join Contributors if you are from a Pacific island nation. We're very quick to respond to incoming join requests, so sit tight!

▪ What type of art can I submit to the group's gallery/favourites?
We accept art made with a wide variety of mediums, be it photography, paintings and even digital work, as long as it relates to the Pacific in one way or another.

▪ How many submissions am I allowed to make per week?
You are allowed to submit 3 pieces a day to our gallery, but you can suggest any amount of favourites (be considerate, though, as we will have to review all suggestions).

▪ As a Member, am I allowed to submit pieces to the gallery?
Members are allowed to suggest favourites only to the group, and only Contributors can submit pieces to the gallery.

▪ What does it take to become a Contributor?
To become a Contributor in the group, you must either be invited by the administrators, or be from one of the Pacific Islands listed below. If you are from a Pacific Island, but are now living somewhere else, you may still apply to become a Contributor.

▪ Can I suggest a gallery submission/favourite by a person who is not a Pacific Islander?
As mentioned previously, as long as it fits in with the overall theme of the group, it is eligible for submission, regardless of where its artist is from.

Hopefully, you agree with this idea and help bring this brainchild of ours into fruition. Please assist in the development of the group by doing any of the following:
▪ Inviting your friends to join the group.
▪ Submitting your artwork to our gallery.
▪ Suggesting favourites which are in line with the group's interests.

Thank you very much.
