Wayne Seyb (1961-)
Wayne Seyb was born in Temuka, South Canterbury and went to the Otago Polytechnic School of Art in Dunedin.Seyb is an expressionist painter, whose gestural and colourful work encompasses landscape and abstraction, inviting comparison with the work of M. T. Woollaston. Seyb has also worked on woodcuts, his prints having the immediacy and expressiveness of his paintings, with an additional directness which derives from the precise demands of the medium.
This print is a portrait of R A K Mason. Mason is regarded as New Zealand’s first authentic poet.
