Liam Downes

Painter

ARTIST BIO

Life is about the moment. We are free to express ourselves. Making our mark helps us to find our place within the moment. The trick is to stay there. 

 

Liam studied at the London Institute and Brighton College of Art and Design in the UK. He worked in the design and illustration industry before packing his paint brush and moving to New Zealand in 2001. Wasting no time he set about creating and exhibiting across Auckland and even dabbled in running his own high street art gallery on Waiheke Island. Auckland has become Liam’s spiritual home, while he continues to find inspiration around most corners of New Zealand; from Rangitoto to the city, chaos to sustainability, following his heart, passions and observations. It’s all about the moment.

 

Liam can usually be found painting in his studio or kauri forest in Laingholm, and he wouldn’t swap it for the world!
