Brent Wong - Giclee Prints
Kumeu Arts Centre are thrilled to announce an exhibition by Brent Wong. We are acclaiming an artist who jokes, “people probably think I’m dead,” as a renowned painter of our time. Wong came to the attention of the New Zealand art scene in the late 1960’s with work that can be commonly discussed as ‘surrealistic,’ however the artist describes his paintings as being more symbolic with personal intention. An almost distant figure to the art world, Wong has resurfaced for a show of Giclee prints from his core collection. Having abandoned painting 10 years ago with a divergence to composing music, these prints will represent a preservation of Wong’s history as an influential New Zealand painter. The exhibition which is set to be the talk of 2019, will present an opportunity to own a signed, limited edition print of an iconic, seminal painting. Prints will also be available to purchase through our website for the duration of the exhibition.
Opening Night: Friday March the 22nd 5-8pm
