Lives in Wellington
Even as a young artist, Karl Maughan was captivated by what has emerged as his signature subject – the garden. Ever faithful to his subject, Maughan has exhibited his paintings throughout Australasia and in Britain for more than 25 years.
Career highlights include inclusion in Saatchi Collection Catalogue Show at Saatchi Gallery, London, (1998), Stop Making Sense, City Gallery, Wellington (1995) and his solo exhibition Walking in Light at Vertigo Gallery, London (2003). Maughan holds a Master of Fine Arts (Elam School of Fine Arts, University of Auckland, 1987). His works are widely collected by private patrons and while his largest painting to date, A clear day (1999), is in the permanent collection of Te Papa Tongarewa.
Gow Langsford Gallery has represented Karl Maughan since 1987.
