Kalisolaite 'Uhila lived with pigs for eight days, cooked himself in an oven, became a human couch and slept on the streets of Tāmaki Makaurau for three months, all in the name of art.
Uhila has now won the Contemporary Pacific Artist Award at this year's Creative New Zealand's Pasifika Awards.
'Uhila is an inspiration; we look forward to seeing what he'll create next.
