Meet the Artist: Michel Mulipola

Mālō le soifua! Introducing Oh My Ocean artist
Michel Mulipola!

Michel Mulipola is a Samoan comic book artist, pro wrestler and semi-pro gamer born and raised in Māngere, South Auckland. Michel is one of very few professional Pasifika comic artists. With a growing international fanbase, he enjoys sharing his practice with people from all over the globe. Michel has illustrated works for the WWE, Marvel Comics, 2K Games ANZ, SIS Show, Sky TV, Pasifika Heroes Books and NZ School Journals amongst many others.  

Michel’s work as a storyteller through the medium of comic making is seen as a contemporary continuation of the legacy of sharing stories; a vital facet of life across the Pacific. For his 2020 Fale-ship residency, Michel further developed comic-works for the O Le Aiga Samoa webcomics – the first-ever Samoan language comic. For the Oh My Ocean exhibition, Michel will be featuring a collection of works on Tautai’s 70m Moana Wall located on East Street.
