Andy Griffiths and Mark Graham
Opens Thursday 27 September 6pm until Wednesday 10 October; 10 – 3 daily
An exhibition of contrasts; urban and rural, watercolour and acrylics, street art and landscapes; this exhibition of work by two Kaipara artists will intrigue and delight visitors to the Mangawhai Artists Gallery.
Andy’s landscapes and seascapes, his spontaneous use of watercolour captures the beauty of Kaipara. For Andy watercolour is the antithesis of the digital painting which has occupied him for the last 10 years. Having been a professional artist since 1990 working for large corporate clients like Warner Bros Consumer Products and small independent publishers, Andy explains ‘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. Looking at his paintings you will be too.
A lover of street art combining graphic design, a love of street wear, an extensive collection of Nikes, Mark’s 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.
