Michel Tuffery and Jeff Thompson - Sculptors


Michel Tuffery sculpture
Michel Tuffery is a New Zealand born artist  with a Pasifika heritage.  Although I knew of him as a sculptor, I found out that he also paints and makes prints.

The pic at the top is his most famous work to date.   It is made out of flattened corned beef cans. It is life sized.

Jeff Thompson is also a New Zealand sculptor who makes animals out of corrugated iron.  Here is one of his elephants.  Would you like to have him in your garden?

And here's his sculpture of a station wagon.  How quirky is that!

  1. I like the corrugated sculptures along the route from Auckland to Rotorua.
