Accidental course set Ger­brig paint­ing

Te Puke Times - - NEWS / ARTS -

Each month Te Puke So­ci­ety of Artists show­cases the work of one of its mem­bers at its Con­sta­bles Gallery.

Artist Ger­brig Mun­ten­dam’s work is cur­rently be­ing fea­tured.

1. How long have you been paint­ing and how did you start?

I have been paint­ing since 1994. I went to sum­mer school (by ac­ci­dent) in Hamil­ton that year.

2. What are your favourite medium and sub­ject?

I can­not re­ally say that I have a fa­vorite medium, but work with acrylic at the mo­ment. I like the en­vi­ron­ment and work on that with acrylic and mixed medium .

I also did metal art and use pas­tel for por­trai­ture. 3. What inspires you? The en­vi­ron­ment inspires me, the colours are right in front of you and never clash. My work is by vi­sion and thought and is my own work.

4. What is your great­est achieve­ment in art?

My great­est achieve­ment in art is that I was se­lected in a World-Expo in Italy in 2016. They in­vited me to the launch of the book of the se­lected artists from New Zealand. Un­for­tu­nately, we had only just came back from Europe. The book was send to me.

Ger­brig Mun­ten­dam is this month’s fea­tured artist at Te Puke So­ci­ety of Artists.
