Jason Hicks - Painter and Artist

"As an artist I paint to express myself and explore ideas that would otherwise not have been developed. The birds, and land are all symbols I use to convey these ideas. The paintings are stories combining experiences and ideas about being a New Zealander."

Jason's inspiration for his work comes from his love of the New Zealand landscape and his passion for the history of our land. His bold and sometimes moody landscapes are often superimposed with traditional motifs, symbols and shapes, which create a strong emotional reaction for the viewer. Jason has achieved recognition with Norsewear and Waikato art awards and Rosl art UK travel scholarship. His work is regularly published in books and magazines and he has extensive exhibition listings and works in major corporate and private collections in NZ and overseas.
