Fakes and Forgeries Art Competition
 
In November last year Graham was the overall winner of the 2023 Fakes and Forgeries Art Competition. 
His beautiful winning artwork ‘Glenburn 2’ was inspired by the work of New Zealand artist Karl Maughan, who grew up in Manawatū and whose distinctive garden works are well-known in the contemporary New Zealand art world.
 
The internationally acclaimed Fakes and Forgeries Art Competition was inspired by infamous art forger Karl Sim (aka Goldie) who was born in the Rangitikei township of Mangaweka. The competition is hosted biannually by the Yellow Church Gallery in Mangaweka and entries are required to be an exact replica, a copy with a twist or a work ‘inspired-by’/’in the style of’ a famous artwork or artist. Congratulations Graham! See Graham and learn more about the competition on Seven Sharp
