Tony-Harrington-pictured-at-home

Tony Harrington grew up in Hawke's Bay on the East Coast of New Zealand.

He attended a typical bi-cultural school, and it was through his schooling, friends and extended family (plus time spent travelling overseas) that Tony developed a great respect and appreciation of Maori culture. Much of his work is influenced by traditional Maori art forms along with everyday references to kiwi culture.

From his home studio / gallery The View RoomTony creates strikingly graphic artworks which are largely constructed from recycled timbers and found objects. These works carry with them literal and conceptual stories of the past combined with current day references to living in bi-cultural Aotearoa.

The results are intriguing, satisfying fusions of Maori and Pakeha culture that provide the viewer with a truly kiwi perspective tinged with nostalgia.
