Prints for sale by Christchurch artist Bill Hammond (1947 - 2021), one of New Zealand's most influential contemporary painters. Hammond attended Ilam Art School 1966-68 and made toys before painting full-time from 1981. His famous bird paintings are inspired by Hammond's trip to the sub-Antarctic Auckland Islands in 1991.
The first two prints of Bill Hammond's paintings were published to co-incide with a major retrospective exhibition that toured NZ a few years ago. The "Placemakers 1" print by Hammond has now completely sold out. Latest News: Another painting from Hammond's bird series "The Fall of Icarus" has just been published as a fine art print. Update Dec 2020: We have two new Bill Hammond prints just arrived, a new series of ultra high quality giclee prints in exactly the same size as the original paintings. The prints are of "Traffic Cop Bay" and another untitled artwork depicting a blood red heart surrounded by hybrid bird-human figures that Hammond painted in 1987.
