In terms of colour, NZ has a wide selection of vibrant, bright tones including oranges, reds, yellows and greens, which make the country’s art look vibrant and alive. With New Zealand situated between the east and west oceans, the warm, tropical climate creates a great environment for painting and staining.

If you have a favourite beach, you will probably find many prints of it available, from elegant to casual and everything in between. The colours and patterns of these fine artworks are usually diverse, creating a range of choices for your art prints.

The Maori culture is famous for its beautiful art, and modern art prints of this culture are abundant. One of the most commonly used types of Maori art is beadwork, which is created by decorating objects made from sharp-edged stone beads and wooden or metallic strips with plant seeds. The artist uses a technique called ‘laying on of hands’ to create these beads and strips, which is performed by the non-dominant hand. Others have created wonderful paintings with the help of a Maori painter, using tools such as awls, paddles and other tools not commonly seen on the outside of humans’ hands. The techniques used in beadwork were once part of Maori lifestyle, and so are still evident in modern beadwork and painting.

If you like western or contemporary artwork, there are several artists who can provide you with that style and subject matter. The western portion of New Zealand is well-known for the best art work, and is home to some of the world’s most famous painters. Maori art has also had great popularity, and is widely held as being traditional in origin. Some examples of western New Zealand artworks include John Keats’ famous paintings of the scenery around Mount Cook and John Milton’s Paradise Lost. The style and subject matter of these artists’ work stands apart from most of what is produced elsewhere in New Zealand.

Traditional fine art pieces include those produced by Wairakea artists. Examples of this include their artwork for a number of centuries for Queen Victoria, including some very striking paintings of her and the other royal family members. William Beveridge’s The House of Pleasure is another example of Wairakea art, and he is widely regarded as a master painter. Many Wairakea artists have become famous for their paintings of scenic scenes, including the famed Birds of Paradise. There are also several examples of traditional Maunganui art from the Tarawera area of New Zealand, including examples of Wairakea pottery, kiwi art and stone carvings.

Modern art is becoming increasingly popular all over New Zealand. In many cases, it is artists who have been influenced by New Zealand culture and lifestyle who are creating modern works of art. An example is artist Peter Fox, who is renowned for his realistic portrayals of rural life. His artwork for example, The Settlement, has won numerous awards, including the Art Society of New Zealand’s Annual Exhibition of Candles and Flame, and he currently teaches at Waikato University. Other modern artists who have developed their style based on the lifestyle and culture of New Zealand include Bill Oddings and John James.
