Richard Wells


-Short Bio

Born and raised in Southland and Central Otago, Richard is a figurative sculptor working out of his studio in Ponsonby, Auckland.
Richard’s beautiful artworks capture moments in life revealing movement and emotion. Created using traditional techniques and the ancient medium of bronze, Richard’s artworks tell human stories in a contemporary context and his sought after, highly collectable works are held in collections both here and overseas including in the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa’s permanent collection.

Richard casts all his work and is currently installing a 3 metre long, leaping bronze dog, commissioned by the Lakes District Art and Culture Trust, in the pond at Queenstown Gardens.
