Apirana Taylor is a 58 year old man (born in 15/3/55) who is a writer, poet, storyteller, painter and actor. This man went to Te Aute College and then from there we went to Massey university. He must have learnt a lot in school and University because he is well known for his powerful poetry readings and magical story telling.
He has been working for many labouring jobs such as working on building sites, labouring and cleaning toilets. Apirana chose to work at these places,because he thought it would help him with what he wanted to write about. He has been invited to perform all over the country, and also visited Europe and India twice to perform.
This man has really developed in writing and storytelling and one day I wish to see him perform in front of me!
