Works of Sculptor Max Patte at Westpac Auckland

Through an online invitation from Westpac, I went to see this sculpture and custom wall art exhibition of Max Patte, which was scheduled on the second day of the Diwali Festival (12 October) and also to celebrate Auckland Arts Week.

I did an impromptu interview with Max Patte. He moved to New Zealand about five years ago and worked for Sir Peter Jackson’s Weta Workshop company as head of the sculpture department. After a few years, he decided to do his own thing and have managed to do that while working part time for Weta. He then went full time with doing his own sculpture work not long after.

The following are a few of my favorites from the said exhibition.

The Nags Head No. 1 in Black Plaster
The Nags Head No. 2 in Dental Stone
The Frolic and The Fancy series of Horse Sculptures in Cast Iron
Rest sculpture in Black Plaster
