Meet our artist Sam Mathers
Raglan artist Sam Mathers is the artist behind our beautiful owl “Rough Seas” as part of the Haier Big Hoot 2018.
Not only a noted artist in New Zealand, Sam has lived in London, working at Sotheby’s moving fine arts. This job influenced Sam's work a great deal, as he was constantly handling works by the greatest Artists to ever live. After returning to New Zealand Sam held his first solo exhibition in Raglan. He went on to hold a second, solo exhibition at Mobile Art Gallery in Auckland. He has been commissioned by Saatchi & Saatchi to paint a mural in their Parnell office’s. Sam then went on to paint a mural for The Media Design School in Auckland. This led to another commissioned mural in San Diego in 2012 for New School of Architecture and Design (NSAD). Since then, Sam has exhibited in numerous group art shows throughout New Zealand. Sam’s Art is now sought after by serious Art collectors in New Zealand and international collectors.
Sam continues with his exhibitions in New Zealand and works on personal and commercial commissioned Art works in New Zealand and around the world.
