Auckland's Beach Pictures by New Zealand Artists

Fine art prints of beach pictures by New Zealand artists are vibrant in colour and loaded with emotion and symbolism. Each has its own way to express powerfully the impression that the west coast of Auckland transmits to its visitors.

Tony Ogle is full of symbolism, while Barry Ross Smith strength is his love for detail to capture a moment. Maryanne Thomsen chose the colours of a sunny day while Rob McGregor stylises an evening glow. Jane Puckey's strength is her photo realistic approach.

Displayed contemporary artists capture scenes at the sea with an eye for detail, a love for vibrant colours and humour that immediately brighten up the viewers’ day. The mood on New Zealand Prints is set by seascape, tide and weather.

Aloha Piha by Tony Ogle

Aloha Piha by Tony Ogle

Born in north of Auckland in Castor Bay, Tony started his career in commercial advertising but soon left this career path behind to set up a screen printing studio. His first prints reflecting his love to New Zealand's coast were sold in Auckland's galleries thereafter. To this day screen printing is Tony's preferred way to express his art graphically with strong colours in a strictly limited number of prints. His techniques became with experience more and more refined yet the seascape theme remains dominant.

His print ‘Aloha Piha’ is a wonderful example of the coast, fun activities outline in strong graphic colouring. Depth of meaning is added with the reference of pacific motifs in the sunset. The movement of the waves makes the scene very present.

Barry Ross Smith is a contemporary popular New Zealand painter.

Maryanne Thomsen

Muriwai Heads by Maryanne Thomsen

A young New Zealand artist, from Lower Hutt in the Wellington region, lives for her art and music. Maryanne launched her painting career with huge success. The first 13 months of her professional painter life returned a sale of 40 paintings. For a newcomer this is a fantastic achievement.

The displayed example gives an excellent tribute to her passion. Bright colours of a sun drenched day draw anyone right into the scene of watching the coming and going of nesting Australasian gannets at Muriwai.

Beach Star by Jane Puckey

Beach Star by Jane Puckey

The New Zealand seascape and native plants are objects Jane Puckey brings to canvas. Loaded with energy through vibrant colours, love for detail and the art to paint light New Zealand scenes vibrate a strong mood.

Lion Rock is a well known landmark at Piha Beach, one of West Auckland most popular surf beaches. The viewer is drawn in and becomes part of the scene. While the painting ‘Beach Star’ gives a very detailed insight to the seed balls of spinifex grass that can be watched in autumn rolling in the wind on west coast beaches like Karekare and Whatipu.
