Artist Max McGrail was born and educated in small town Wanganui, New Zealand.
Having a love of art all his childhood led him to Elam Art School in Auckland where he graduated with a Diploma in Fine Arts with Honours in 1977.
Max's style is unique, and difficult to define it into one category. Influenced by many elements from fantasy, surrealism through to symbolism and touches of the pre-raphealites.
His finely detailed and richly layered paintings are open to vast interpretations while he strives to extend his technical ability to produce well executed works of art.
Max has exhibited in several galleries around New Zealand and his works hang in many private collections thoughout New Zealand and Australia.
