Hamish Macaulay

Hamish is a Kāpiti based printmaker and painter. He has recently returned home to NZ after 14 years living in London. His work consistently features landscapes, seascapes or horizons. Combining painting, printmaking, mixed media and digital manipulation, he layers traditional and modern techniques to create fresh perspectives.

 

Training as a graphic designer in Wellington, New Zealand, Hamish has spent over 25 years working for a number of top design and advertising agencies in both NZ and London.

 

Having started his training as a traditional (pre-digital) graphic designer in the late 80's and evolving his design skills and abilities through the digital era, he is now in a position of having the skills to manipulate his chosen medium in either traditional or new media, or both.

 

He is now a full-time artist, but his design background is still apparent in the artwork he creates. He has exhibited in galleries in London and around the UK, New York, and New Zealand. His work is held in public and private collections internationally including the UK, USA, Europe, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
