Brian Campbell, a seasoned artist born in Christchurch and based in Gisborne has been a prominent figure in the art world since 1986. Specializing in printmaking, Campbell's artistic journey has been defined by his exploration of woodcuts as his primary medium.

Throughout his career, Campbell's prints have remained true to his artistic vision, mirroring the thematic trajectory evident in his paintings. Initially offering satirical reflections on the unrestrained forces of capitalism prevalent in the 1980s, his work has evolved to depict the intriguing landscapes of coastal dwellers, rich with enigmatic events and symbolic motifs.

Despite the pointed nature of his critiques, Campbell's approach is never heavy-handed. Leveraging the reproducibility of printmaking, he crafts accessible artworks capable of engaging a wider audience.
