Born in 1982 in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand, artist Joe Helmore now lives and works in South Australia. He completed a Bachelor of Visual Art and Design at Massey University, Wellington in 2005 and has exhibited widely in New Zealand and Australia since.
Helmore chooses the figurative animal and the landscape as his subjects. Working to varying scales, his paintings invite the viewer into his unique vision through semi-abstracted vistas and thoughtful geometric mark making.
