Graham Young

Born in England, Graham has lived in New Zealand since 1982. Originally trained as
a photolithographer, he had a long career in the design and print industry, which also included running his own design and prepress studio. Graham returned to concentrate on his first love of oil painting in the early 2000s.

He has exhibited widely in New Zealand with his paintings gaining recognition, making their way into collections both here and overseas, including Australia, USA and the UK, with his adopted home remaining his primary inspiration.

The Art Lounge NZ is pleased to announce that Graham’s new art collection will be on show and for sale at his upcoming solo exhibition “Kiwi Summer” in our gallery during a month of February 2019.

From the Artist

“Using vibrant colour and detail has built my reputation for creating realistic paintings that capture the familiar, yet often overlooked scenes found throughout New Zealand. My work represents snapshots of the laid back Kiwi lifestyle from coastal beach to suburban and rural scenes. I am also focusing on signposts of the past with the old vehicles and caravans that have given pleasurable memories to our lives as they get swept away by the rate of modern progress. The human imprint on the landscape is a vital part of my work.”
