Belinda Griffiths

Belinda Griffiths is a conceptual figurative Artist currently based in Auckland.

Belinda works within the disciplines of painting and printmaking and explores the expressive power of the gestural mark. When coupled with depictions of the human form, this push and pull between mark and form has the potential to dig deeper and communicate something of the human experience that becomes more authentic, more visceral.
