An exhibition of contrasts – urban and rural, watercolour and acrylics, street art and landscapes – highlights the work by two Kaipara artists currently showing at Mangawhai Artists Gallery.
Andy Griffiths’ landscapes and seascapes in watercolour capture the beauty of Kaipara.
For Andy, watercolour is the antithesis of the digital painting which has occupied him for the last 10 years.
A professional artist since 1990, Andy has worked for large corporate clients like Warner Bros Consumer Products and small independent publishers.
“In 2017 I blew the dust off my 30-year-old set of watercolour paints and made the decision to start ‘real’ painting again.”
This is Andy’s first exhibition and he is excited about this new phase of his artistic career.
A lover of street art combining graphic design, a love of street wear, and an extensive collection of Nikes, Mark Graham collaborates with local and New Zealand-wide artists to sell artworks, products and apparel.
Mark studied graphic design at Massey University and keeps his creativity flowing by regularly changing his art style.
