Roy Sefton Profile

Roy Sefton's passion for art began during childhood and in 1977 he became a professional artist and art tutor.

His works have being exhibited in the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts, the British High Commission and in collections world wide.

Nuclear testing in the South Pacific. Operation Grapple happened over 50 years ago, but for Roy Sefton it is part of his everyday life.


Operation Grapple, the code-name given to the nuclear testing operations conducted by the British Ministry of Defence between 1957 and 1958 and on the decks of HMNZS Pukaki and HMNZS Rotoiti young sailors witnessed the detonation of a super power.

It was a monster. A beautiful monster. And to this day, the veterans are still battling with what they experienced. The same hands that were held as a flimsy defense in front of their faces now shake with a tremor that will not be calmed.

Roy Sefton was there.

In his head, in some ways, he still is he says.

His hands now hold a heavy burden as the New Zealand Nuclear Test Veterans' Association chairman. They are the hands of an artist, a maker of exquisite paintings that radiate colour and light, landscapes that held what was beneath, above and inside them.
