Chris Meder was at the forefront of the sculpture scene in NZ. His iconic sculptures; 'Bosca' the Gorilla and 'Chopper Holland' the giant iconic motorbike (on permanent display in the HQ yard) were highlights of the first Steampunk Art Exhibition at Oamaru's Forrester Gallery in 2009. He also made Time Machine for that same exhibition. His works created worldwide interest and heralded the start of the Steampunk movement in Oamaru.
Sadly Chris died in 2010 and much of his work was then withdrawn from public viewing. We are incredibly lucky to have on loan a series of his best works from several sources; including a private Auckland collector, Chris' family and local collectors.
Exhibition extended throughout summer 2015-2016. Visitors to HQ this summer will have the opportunity to marvel at the wonderful exhibition of recycled relics, sculptures created by Chris. The Exhibition that was scheduled to end in August will continue throughout the summer. Read more here.
