Darryn George

Born in 1970, Darryn George (Ngapuhi) completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Painting) at Canterbury in 1993 and a Master of Fine Art (Painting) at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in 1998. Since 1999, George has been Head of Department, Art at Christ's College in Christchurch. George has exhibited his work initially in Melbourne and extensively throughout New Zealand.

Darryn George brings together traditions of Maori art forms with Western abstraction, in a thoroughly engaging and innovative way.

While his paintings express a formalistic aesthetic, close up they reveal surprisingly rich texture. Alternate bands of vibrant colour have been introduced, with a controlled application of impasto leaving a three-dimensional impression that emulates the chisel ridges formed in Maori wood carving.
