Born in 1948, Russell Hollings grew up in Auckland. Largely a self-taught artist, Hollings was given invaluable guidance both from Ida Eise OBE and renowned English painter Edward Seago – with whom he stayed in close personal correspondence with until Seago’s death in 1974. Joining a local Papakura Art Group gave Russell the motivation needed to pursue an artistic career. From the late 1960s he began to hold solo shows within New Zealand; and by the 1990s was exhibiting internationally. Often drawing inspiration from his immediate environment, Russell has an outstanding ability to capture the same scene from varying viewpoints or in changing light, each time making it appear fresh and truthful.

“As a figurative painter, my method focuses on intense observation and application of the correct tonal values… I work all over the painting, ‘pulling’ the whole composition together to capture a moment in time” – Russell Hollings
