New Zealand Landscape Painter Harold Coop releases prints today



NZ Artist Harold Coop
Well-known New Zealand painter Harold Coop has today released a series of prints. Coop is a popular painter in the field of New Zealand contemporary landscape and abstracted landscape. He has had 15 one-man exhibitions throughout New Zealand (so far!), and has also exhibited in France, England, and Australia. His paintings are well-known from his book "A vision of New Zealand" and his paintings are held in important public collections such as the Governor General's Auckland residence.

Harold Coop says that his "paintings radiate a love of the diverse unspoiled landscape and bright clear light with which New Zealanders find themselves surrounded. My paintings express the differing and often transient interaction of land forms, colour, and human contact."

Pictured is Coop's print of his painting Pohutukawa Abstract.

  2. I'm a big fan of your use of colour and shape! This is the most beautiful way of painting landscape that I have encountered.
