Jim Griffiths, Nga Puhi, Welsh, Kiwi.

BFA, Elam School of Fine Arts, Auckland. Majored in Design and Photography.


"I make art for fun, just as I did as a kid. I would stay up late at night drawing until it was time for bed. 

These days I still feel compelled to create new works from an endless stream of ideas. There's great satisfaction when these ideas are realised into tangible art pieces, each one opens the door to new possibilities that have yet to be explored. 

 

Much of my work has a very New Zealand feel. I use native timbers from old villas and bungalows, pieces from pallets, old furniture, almost anything that has an abundance of character and history. You'll see pencil lines, saw cuts, cracked and peeling paint, hand drawn letters, nails, screws and even old wallpaper, no two artworks are the same. 

 

Everything is made by hand and eye in my small workshop. Letters are drawn and designed with pen and paper, timber is cut on a table saw and bandsaw, rasps, files and sandpaper are used to take the rough edges away. There is a deliberate exclusion of computers and technology, I want my work to be hand-crafted by me, for you."
