This comprehensive survey of the art of Fred Graham details the artist’s life from his childhood in the Waikato to his career as a sculptor.

Fred Graham is a leading figure in New Zealand’s art world. He began as an art teacher, and since 1984, he has been a full-time sculptor, producing a wealth of work and having sell-out exhibitions.
