John Archbold
I have been painting in oils for most of my adult life, and enjoy depicting
sky, water, and everything in between.
I love the constantly changing play of light and shade on the landscape, and try
to capture this in all my works.
My other great interest, is painting transport subjects, anything with wheels,
anything that flies, anything on rails.
Wellington is my home town, my formative years were spent in Eastbourne. I
was educated at Wellington College, and have also studied in London. My wife
and I have recently moved to Marton, and are loving it.
I have successfully exhibited at the: Artists Open Studios Whanganui, for the
past five years, Marton Arts and Crafts Centre, Feilding Art Centre, Marton
Barber’s Art Gallery, Rustic Eating House, NZ Art Show, Frames Gallery,
Memelink Gallery, the Van Helden Gallery, Fine Arts Wanganui Gallery, and
have commissioned works in private collections throughout New Zealand, North
America and the UK.
