Murray Gibbs

Applied Arts Tutor

As an artist Murray often revisits the transition phase between the past and the present. Contained within much of his work are narratives, issues and concerns that explore the universal conditions of human nature, decay and renewal, and the relationship with the natural environment. Murray’s arts practice includes both mixed media assemblages and graphite drawings.

Murray Gibbs studied in New Zealand, USA and Australia, obtaining a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Bachelor Fine Arts (Honours) and Master Fine Arts Degrees. He was a University Lecturer in Arts in Australia and currently teaches on the arts degree programme at NorthTec.
