About Us

My name is Ian McConnachie and I am the owner of Masterpieces New Zealand. I have been running an art business in Europe for the past 12 years before moving to New Zealand in 2014. As a journalist I travelled the world and was fortunate to meet many talented artists in Europe, Asia, the Americas and am now adding artists from New Zealand to my list. So Masterpieces may now be located in New Zealand but we see ourselves as an international company with no boundaries! We offer paintings from international artists and we send our paintings to any country in the world. 

Whilst we offer high quality paintings our aim is to make art affordable! Some top artists nowadays offer so called Giclee prints of their works. These are extremely high resolution prints which are very hard to differentiate from the original. The inks used are of a standard that ensures they will never fade or deteriorate in any way. They are printed on high qulaity canvases and stretched and presented just as an original oil painting would be. They are also hand-signed by the artist so you are buying a personalized copy of an extremly valuable original. 

With this exception every piece of art you see here online or in our gallery in Kerikeri is guaranteed to be hand painted. Also our reproduction offer of old masters are completely hand painted and sometimes the artist will even sign to authenticate the painting as his own interpretation of the original. 

As our offer is forever changing we would recommend you come back regularly to see what we have on-stock or contact us by mail at info@masterpieces.co.nz
