Gordon Walters (1919 - 1995) prints in stock at NZ's specialist art print gallery since 1966. Walters is one of our favourite modern New Zealand artists. Gordon Walters was a pioneer of modernist abstract painting in New Zealand.
Walters trained as a commercial artists at Wellington Technical College in 1935. He worked in Europe between 1950 and 1953 and returned to New Zealand in 1953 working at the Government Printing Office until he began painting fulltime in 1966. Gordon Walters famous Koru series of paintings were influenced by Walters' interest in the symbolic forms of Māori rock art. With only one print of Gordon Walters artworks available - Mākaro - we are hoping that a change of heart by the trustees of the Gordon Walters Foundation will lead to more prints becoming available in the future.
