MEET THE ARTISTS
a LIVE painting experience
As seen @ ArtWeek in the City + Late Night Art 2023
PRO ARTISTS IN ACTION
WORKS IN PROGRESS
THE CREATIVE PROCESS
LIMITED EDITION PRINTS
A selection of Auckland based artists worked on their latest inspirations ‘LIVE' at their easels. Thanks to the fabulous team at Heart of the City and the Ellen Melville Centre visitors got to meet artists in action in Auckland's CBD at ArtWeek in the City and Late Night Art.
From expressionism to impressionism, fantasy to real life, visitors were able to discover what they do; the process, the obstacles and the rewards. The artists were on-hand to answer queries and to share tips and techniques. The visitors were also given the opportunity 'to get messy' on the shared canvas provided.
Meet the ArtWeek line-up
Artist | Designer | Illustrator
Liam finds inspiration around most corners of New Zealand. Auckland has become his spiritual home; ‘The clash of mother nature and feats of man-made engineering - Rangitoto sleeps as the Sky Tower looms'; commentary through opposing land and city scapes dominate; figure painting 'just for the love of it'; throw in the odd statement for good measure. He draws some influence from a background in the commercial arts, embracing the battle between structure and abandon.
Artist | Art Tutor
Nemesh describes his art as a transfer of his feelings and emotions in a specific moment (Inspiration) onto the surface of the canvas. Strong emotional moments are very important in this act of creation. They may be induced with music or any other circumstances such as joy, love, anger or worry. What you see on his canvas is a result of more than thirty years of development, but not only technically, there is also spiritual growth involved which drastically changed his paintings.
Artist | Ceramicist | Jeweller
Craig Fletcher has been working as an artist in New Zealand for many decades. He began his career with traditional sculpture in clay and bronze. His work has developed into low relief ceramic sculptures. These are over painted with water-colour, acrylic and occasional gold leaf. Craig's also transitions into the tiny world of jewellery, as a scaled version of the paintings.
Craig is a passionate advocate for supporting Kiwi Made and believes that New Zealanders are made of strong stuff.
