Kerry Thompson

Kerry Thompson is a master of traditional wearable art. He is one of New Zealand's best known and most skilled carvers with an unmistakable style that speaks of the deep respect he has for his craft, his culture and his tribe. His roots are in the far north of the North Island where he lives with his family and has his studio.

He is heavily involved in promoting Maori culture in general and art in particular, worldwide, and is a very sought after artist. He exhibits in galleries all over Europe, the Americas and the Middle East. He also regularly leads cultural delegations travelling the world to raise the profile of indigenous peoples. 

Kerry is the ultimate master of his craft, working in wood, bone, jade and metal, often combining all of these materials into stunning works of art that are unequalled anywhere.
