Christian Hawira-Seanoa was a student at PNBHS from 2014 until 2018. He is currently in his second year of his Bachelor of Fine Arts (Hons) at the College of Creative Arts in Wellington.

The board game focuses on the lands native to Maori and tribes that had been stolen under the Queen’s rule. Places like Parihaka, Ruakenana and many more. This piece was created around the time that Fletchers Building Company was going to build a construction on Ihumatoa. Monopoly + Fletcheers = Fletchopoly. The canvas painting of Billie Eilish was a canvas painting project that Christian completed to further refine his painting skills.
