Artist - Auckland
Arty Wright is the pseudonym for one of New Zealand’s most experienced printmakers.
Having worked in the commercial world for over fifty years producing screenprinting of the highest quality and in the latter years working with recognised New Zealand Artists; Walters, Hanly, Smither, Frizzell, Palmer to name but a few, Arty has put together his thoughts and experience to produce this unique series of screenprints.
The Trademark series bring to the public at large a glimpse of New Zealand nearly forgotten. The images on this series of prints date back over fifty years or more. The designs used on our manufactured goods were drawn by artists with pencil, pen, brush and ink, the artists themselves largely remained anonymous, working either as employees of advertising companies or within the manufacturing company itself.
Arty, like the original artist, likes to remain anonymous but salutes their bygone skills by producing this limited edition of screenprints.
