George Nuku is one of Aotearoa New Zealands current leading contemporary Māori artists of all time. He hails from the Ngāti Kahungunu tribe of the Hawkes Bay region of the North Island of Aotearoa New Zealand.

George works in stone, bone, wood, shell, polystyrene and plexiglass. His works range from delicate jade and pearl amulets, life size stone and plexiglass sculptures, through to two story high Polynesian demigods and Māori culture heroes. He carries the tradition of his people handed down for thousands of years in an artform that promises to expand life and enhance survival. He is well known both in New Zealand and internationally. His work is highly regarded and sought after.

George has created over 50 major projects in museums, art institutions and on marae (tribal meeting grounds) all around the world and in Aotearoa New Zealand. He is currently based in France.
