Bio


 

Stuart Robertson

Born 1969, Auckland, New Zealand

 

Contemporary artist and humanitarian Stuart Robertson melds photography, film, digital media, symbolism, hand blown glass and neon with his background in design and fabrication to create works that speak profoundly to the viewer causing us to confront our own preconceptions and gracefully recognise our similarities in the human condition.

Creating a global conversation and ripple effect, he draws on the phenomenal power of modern social networks and instant borderless communication that dissolves prejudice and makes mankind more connected than at any other time in history.

The artists practice has developed and been refined over 30 years. His artworks now hang in many private established collections throughout New Zealand and the USA and in recent years his profile has gained significant momentum internationally.

Robertson’s passion for seeing the world through an alternate view runs deep. His grandfathers were both prolific photographers with their own darkrooms and camera collections. Their love for the medium underpins the artist’s own obsession.
