Colin McCahon (1919-1987) is arguably New Zealand's most significant artist to date. Born in Timaru, his early life was lived in Dunedin where he studied at the Technical College. Moving to Nelson in 1939, Colin McCahon spent a decade in the area, where he and Toss Woollaston influenced each other's work.

After spending almost five years in Christchurch, Colin McCahon and his family moved to Auckland, where he worked at the Auckland City Art Gallery and was later appointed lecturer at the Auckland University School of Fine Arts. Characteristic of much of McCahon's work is religious symbolism, and the use of words in the painting; later the words became the whole painting.

The McCahon print "Constant flow of Light" (also known as PURE LAND is now back in stock after being re-printed.
