One of the most influential painters to come to New Zealand in the past twenty years was British born Riduan Tomkins. He studied at the Royal college of Art in London in the 1960s and exhibited at the Whitechapel and Waddington Galleries In London. Tomkins' brightly-coloured atmospheric paintings, which move between the abstract and the figurative, translate beautifully into detailed floor rugs.

Artist | Riduan Tompkins

Tompkins’ international pedigree is unquestionable, as is his influence upon a younger generation of New Zealand painters including Shane Cotton and Seraphine Pick. From 1985 – 1995 Riduan Tomkins was senior lecturer in painting at the University of Canterbury. His painterly approach coupled with the intellectual rigour of his work, left an indelible impression upon new painters emerging from Ilam from the mid 80s to the present.
