Rob Upritchard

Born in New Plymouth in 1973 Rob moved to Christchurch with his parents at 12 and has been a Canterbury boy since.  Rob comes from a long line of artisans, his mother and sister both well known in the NZ arts community.

Rob is a self taught sculptural artist who works skilfully in many mediums.  He is a regular exhibitor both here and overseas and always brings a unique perspective to his work.  In this case, it is his reworking of a design classic with a distinctly Canterbury spin.
