"Kumeu Arts Centre are thrilled to host an exhibition by Brent Wong. We are acclaiming an artist who jokes, “people probably think I’m dead,” as a renowned painter of our time. Wong came to the attention of the New Zealand art scene in the late 1960’s with work that can be commonly discussed as ‘surrealistic,’ however the artist describes his paintings as being more symbolic with personal intention.
An almost distant figure to the art world, Wong has resurfaced for a show of Giclee prints from his core collection. Having abandoned painting 10 years ago with a divergence to composing music, these prints represent a preservation of Wong’s history as an influential New Zealand painter."

‘MAKE ME AN OFFER’
11th – 23rd FEB 2019
A Kumeu Arts Centre Members’ Exhibition
This exhibition will run much like a silent auction. Visitors will be able to ‘make an offer’ on each artwork in the exhibition by writing down their details and their bid. Artists will be notified at the end of exhibition what the highest bid (if any) was for their work and will choose to either accept or decline. The potential buyer will then be notified.
