Rusiate's ideas are nourished from his direct family who have had gifted him with a strong cultural identity from their contributions as Fijian artistic icons.
Added to this influences from a modernist tradition and you have an energetic body of work grounded in ancestral history.
A founding member of the Red Wave group at the Oceanic Centre of the University of the South Pacific in Suva, Fiji in 1998, Rusiate was inspired by his lecturer artist John Pule and Professor Epeli Ha u ofa.
Encoded within these design elements are personal totemic iconography and narratives that source both the artist's contemplations of contemporary popular culture and ancestral stories.
