Phillip Waddington Original Artworks

Lower Hutt artist Phillip Waddington is especially well known for his striking Māori portraits. As a young man in the 1970s, Phillip travelled through the Ureweras, seeking out the last Māori women with the traditional facial tattoo (moko). He is equally skilled in the depiction of New Zealand’s native birds whose conservation has long been a passion and led to his invention of an humane predator trap now widely used by the Department of Conservation.
