Paul Dibble is an accomplished bronze sculptor and one of only a few artists in New Zealand who cast their own works. He studied at Elam School of Fine Arts, University of Auckland, receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1967 and was awarded an Honorary Doctorate received from Massey University, Palmerston North in 2007.
A high point of his career is the successful commission of The New Zealand Hyde Park Corner Memorial in London. The permanent sculpture was unveiled in Hyde Park in 2006 by Her Majesty the Queen. Dibble’s work is represented in public collections across the country including Te Papa, Museum of New Zealand. His work is the subject of two monographs The Large Works (Bateman 2012) and Paul Dibble (Bateman, 2002).
Gow Langsford Gallery has represented Paul Dibble since 1990.
