Jason Greig

b. 1963, New Zealand

Jason Greig graduated from the University of Canterbury School of Fine Arts, Christchurch, New Zealand in 1985 with honours in engraving. He studied printmaking under renowned New Zealand printmaker, Barry Cleavin and went on to teach the next generation at both Otago (Dunedin, New Zealand) and Canterbury school of art. Primarily a printmaker, Greig exhibits his lithographs, monoprints, drawings, paintings and etchings, both here and internationally, on an annual basis. His work is held in numerous private and public collections including Te Papa, Wellington; the Hocken Library in Dunedin; Christchurch Art Gallery and the Aigantighe Art Gallery, Timaru.

Jason Greig’s etchings, mono-prints and lithographs consider the bleakness of the human condition with both humour and profundity, inspired by heavy metal music, Goya, French Symbolism and Gothic art and horror movies.
