Artists Karl Maughan

Karl Maughan

b. 1964, New Zealand
Lives in Wellington

Karl Maughan has been captivated by what has emerged as his signature subject – the garden – for decades.  He held his first solo exhibition at Brooker Galleries in 1987, after completing a Master of Fine Arts at Elam School of Fine Arts.  In 1994 Maughan moved to London and had several studios around the East End, which he shared with artists who were later notable figures in the Young British Artists movement.  Maughan returned to New Zealand in 2005 and currently lives and works in Wellington.

Career highlights include featuring in the Saatchi Collection Catalogue Show at Saatchi Gallery, London, (1998), Stop Making Sense, City Gallery, Wellington (1995) the solo exhibition Walking in Light at Vertigo Gallery, London (2003) and the survey exhibition Karl Maughan: A Clear Day at Pataka Art Galley & Museum, Porirua (2015). Maughan’s work is held in private collections across New Zealand, Australia, Asia and the UK. His works feature in prominent public New Zealand collections including Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū; The Suter Art Gallery Te Aratoi o Whakatū, Nelson; and Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa.

Gow Langsford Gallery has represented Karl Maughan since 1987.
