Nigel Wilson was born in 1957 and grew up in Wellington. He has been a full time artist since leaving a teaching profession at Cargill High School in 1997, where he was Associate Art Teacher for seven years.

He has a Fine Arts Degree from Ilam, University of Canterbury, completed in 1982, where he was tutored under Don Peebles. Since then he has exhibited regularly, winning a number of painting awards. Nigel is well represented in public and private collections throughout New Zealand, with twenty-seven solo exhibitions to his name.

In the year 2000 Nigel Wilson moved to Alexandra, where he continues to boldly paint the Otago landscape. More recent involvement with the Central Otago Art Society saw his appointment as President in 2008-9. His home gallery has the largest collection of his work and visitors are encouraged to call before viewing.

Nigel Wilson's work captures the raw, natural beauty and distinct character of New Zealands Central Otago landscapes through expressive, impassioned brushwork and vibrant, descriptive colour. From a distance Wilson's works provide an imposing scene, but up close, they are even more arresting. Oil paint has been applied with variety, energy and certainty, with each stroke having a compelling autonomy. More recently Nigel has developed a series of works, different in character, even some mounted gouaches behind framed glass.

"Nigel's work 'Orchard Series' captures the natural beauty and distinct character character of Central Otago landscapes through vibrant descriptive colour and emotionally charged brushstrokes. An imposing and resonating colour field tondo results in an almost ethereal light to play on the otherwise hard autumn shapes." David Woodings
