Anton Forde (Ngāti Ruanui, Gaelige, Gaelic, English) holds a Masters of Māori Visual Arts with First Class Honours from Toioho ki Āpiti/Massey University. His connection to the land, the majesty of nature, and a fascination with themes that are universal to ‘first nation’ cultures are the greatest influences on his work. Forde has since spent extended periods living in his Nanna’s (Taranaki - Ngati Ruanui - Iwi Taranaki) part of the country, with the majestic Maunga Taranaki ever-present, and in Ireland, where he discovered ancient inspirational art themes. Forde has a number of significant public works in public and private collections both in New Zealand and overseas.
