Trent Wylie - Aotearoa Artist

He has always loved to draw, paint, create and invent and a career as an artist is something that evolved rather than him making a conscious decision to be an artist. “The term ‘artist’ is just a name for doing what I love.” Trent’s love affair with beautiful New Zealand is a constant inspiration for him. “I love this beautiful country and this is my inspiration, our towns, our rivers, our mountains, our beaches and our people.” He is also inspired by the work of John Singer Sargent and really loves the style of Russian Impressionist artist, Alexi Zaitsev. “We also have some great local artists here in Hawkes Bay and seeing their beautiful work inspires me as well.”

Trent explains what being an artist means to him: “I love the freedom to paint whatever I want, whenever I want. As a tattoo artist you are always trying to come up with pieces to keep your clients happy, and that’s exactly how it should be because you are working for them and they will be carrying your artwork around their whole life, so it’s all about doing what the client wants. As a painter I can paint what I like and if I am lucky enough that someone else likes it enough to put on their wall, then that’s great.”
