Wichman, who is an Auckland artist & author was born in England, has been living in New Zealand since 1960.

Wichman studied drawing and painting at the Waikato Society of Arts. and has exhibited solo over twenty times.

“Wichman brings his interest in literature and art history to bear on his paintings which generally deal with psychological and moral questions. Human passion, social responsibility, power struggle, conflicts of loyalty and the intrusion of the unexpected are themes which span his career. His pictures are highly narrative and often use references or symbols that suggest the recurring nature of experience. He attempts to portray the human predicament as something both eternal and immediate and, in doing so, he introduces figures from earlier cultures into his cast of contemporary characters.”

It seems to me that Wichman’s work are weird and wonderful, with genuine human intrigue as motive and an assessment of the human condition in their portrayal. Each work is executed with competent technical skill.

This portrait of a man with shackled neck is an excellent example of his work - very emotive and engaging, with a stark colour palette, and dexterous portrayal of light.
