ricks terstappen

Ricks Terstappen lives in Hawke’s Bay and is one of the region’s best known artists. Wood and steel are his materials of choice. The sculptural works, sometimes created from objects found in our daily lives, are transformed into visual commentary that is often comical, sometimes political and always thought provoking. He works prolifically and his style will be familiar to many, as he has often undertaken public commissions and he exhibits frequently in Hawke’s Bay and throughout the country.

Rick’s work can be seen in large-scale public sculptures as well as held in many private collections.
