The Imaginative Life and Times of Graham Percy rediscovers the life and work of one of New Zealand's most talented and original artists. Percy left this country in the mid-1960s, and became a hugely respected artist/illustrator/typographer overseas, while at the same time producing a remarkable body of his own independent art.
This exhibition, and the major publication that accompanies it, celebrates Percy's achievement as a published illustrator as well as bringing to light a significant body of work never seen before.
His works are held in the collection of the National Galleries of Scotland, yet-since his early years in Auckland--they have never been exhibited publicly in New Zealand.
