Chris Paterson is a designer / illustrator who has a passion for all visual art. Originally from the UK Chris travelled to New Zealand in search of adventure and new experiences, since his arrival Chris has fallen in love with the unique Kiwiana culture of New Zealand and shows this in his work. Chris takes a playful approach to creating colourful characters in his artwork, often with an underlying concept behind them. This might be raising awareness of native wildlife or commenting on a deeper social subject regularly using humour to capture and retain the viewers attention.
