Graham Young

Graham Young creates paintings that aim to capture what he describes as "the vibrancy of contemporary New Zealand life through sparkling light and bold colour". While the NZ landscape is a common background to his artworks Young parts company from many other contemporary NZ landscape painters in focussing on how people live in this country - the human touch on the landscape is not hidden in Young's paintings. The inspiration behind Graham Young's newly released series of canvas prints are the relaxed kiwi attitude to life which Young believes has an appeal that transcends national boundaries.
