Ken Hunt is primarily a portrait artist but is also known for his extraordinary copies of Goldie's works and his original Still Life paintings inspired by the old masters. Working only in oils, Ken captures his subject with astounding accuracy and has a highly refined sense of colour and light.
Over the past 30 years, the majority of his work has been sold privately, by commission, and includes four portraits for the set of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit films.
Since moving back to Kāpiti, Ken has concentrated on painting Still Life, New Zealand native birds, and mountain landscapes along with commissioned portraits.
Ken’s work is exhibited in galleries throughout New Zealand, and in private collections locally and internationally. His works speak for themselves.
