The Artist, in his Studio in Queenstown, New Zealand

“Humanity is enormously powerful. Our actions and thoughts today create our future tomorrow. Each of your actions & thoughts has a subtle yet profound ripple effect. We are each responsible for, and have the ability to choose, how we influence that ripple.”

-Stuart Robertson

ABOUT STUART ROBERTSON

Born 1969, Auckland, New Zealand

Contemporary artist, adventurer and humanitarian Stuart Robertson melds photography, sculpture, film, symbolism and social media with cast glass, gold leaf, neon, lightboxes & stone and metal fabrication to create stunning large scale artworks that speak profoundly to the viewer, causing a confrontation of one’s own preconceptions and an acknowledgement of our similarities in the human condition.

His photographic work has gained momentum internationally photographing the likes of The Dalai Lama, Demi Moore, Jacinda Ardern, Emily Blunt, Danny DeVito, Daryl Hannah, Ringo Starr, Brooke Shields, Arch Bishop Desmond Tutu and more.

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 established private collections throughout New Zealand, the USA and Europe as his profile continues to gain significant momentum.

The artists passion for seeing the world through an alternate view runs deep. With expression and exploration in various mediums and a focus on making a difference.
