BIOGRAPHY


Pastel Shades, Milford Sound - from
the 'Deep South' series
Nathanael Provis has always loved beautiful and dramatic scenery. Born in New Zealand's picturesque South Island, he soon took a strong interest in the surrounding landscape's snow-capped mountains, lakes, native bush, and waterfalls.

As a young child, he enjoyed drawing scenes on paper and cardboard, often using colour pencils, crayons, and even felt-tip pens...

It wasn't until late 2002 that Nathanael decided to pursue a serious career as a landscape artist. Today he paints using high-permanence oils on stretched canvas or prepared board as preferred mediums...



Winter Morning, Minchins Road - from the 'My Canterbury' series


He enjoys taking time out to explore and photograph mountain scenery both in N.Z. and overseas, and he has also painted in the United Kingdom, U.S.A. and Canada. Largely self-taught, Nathanael has a deep passion for the traditional styles of landscape painting and is greatly influenced by the local and international masters of realism and luminism.

Many of his original works, featuring distant rugged peaks, glistening snows, and tranquil lakes can be found in private collections throughout the world. His collections of works include: The "Deep South" series, the "My Canterbury" series, the "My Kind of N.Z." series, the "Man & Nature" series, and more recently, the "Moonlight Adventure" series, the "Mighty Peaks" series, the "Guardian" series, and the contemporary "Landfall" series.
