New Zealand printmaker Paul Hartigan (1953 - ) was born in New Plymouth graduating from Elam School of Fine Arts, University of Auckland, with a DFA in 1974. In Melbourne he trained as a screen printer, a print-making technique that was as radical in the '70s as inkjet prints and digital printmaking are today. On returning to Auckland in 1974 he established Snake Studios, a hand-print studio inspired by Warhol's Factory, producing silk-screened fabrics, t-shirts and artist prints. Paul has worked at the Auckland Institute Museum and at Elam School of Fine Arts as a lecturer in painting and printmaking. Hartigan's artwork is held in major collections throughout New Zealand including Te Papa, Auckland Art Gallery, National Library of New Zealand, Sarjeant Gallery, Govett-Brewster Art Gallery and the Chartwell Collection. Update August 2016: NZ Fine Prints have now sold out of all Paul's Phantom prints that we had in stock.
