Graham Downs
New Zealand Land and Seascape fine art painter

Graham has been carrying his paint box around since he was about eight years old. His work is very diverse like his many interests in life. His work ranges from conceptual, quirky or humerous, metal collages to traditional painting. He uses a lot of discarded materials in his collage work; recycling old things that nobody wants, turning them into something beautiful for people to enjoy. Graham started his career as an advertising art director and illustrator working for many international agencies and has won many awards. But, painting was his escape from that world. New Zealand art critic, T.J. McNamara has described Graham's paintings as "filled with light and full of charm and joy in water, clouds and sky.

After training in fine art, Graeme had a career as an art director and illustrator, winning many national and international awards. He worked on many iconic New Zealand brands like Air NZ, Edmonds, Hubbard cereals, Cuisine magazine, Bell-Gully and many more. Graeme's work is diverse from classical plein air landscape to conceptual collage and sculptural pieces. " I have had a lifetime of conceptual art, but I find that now I have returned to the beginning. My paintings are a synthesis of sketchbook drawings and memory, expressing the visual poetry that resonates within the bounds of my past and present. To express that tranquillity in my own language and to acknowledge how beauty can be in the common world around us and let my paintings be a refuge from the everyday tribulations, and to celebrate nature is my raison d’etre."
