James Wright is a New Zealander of English/Portuguese/African descent. He attributes a lot of his character and style to his late father; he grew up watching his Dad in the farm shed, repairing and making all types of useful pieces. He has also been influenced by the shaping of the land, working with nature’s physical forms and elements giving him an appreciation of natural beauty and its presence.

His works are held in private and public collections. Public works in the greater Auckland region include ‘Nikau’ at the Auckland Botanic Garden; ‘Pride’ positioned in front of the Pukekohe Town Hall, Auckland; ‘Whakaparirau’ taking flight on Hauraki corner on the North Shore, Auckland; ‘TreeMan’ at Eastwoodhill Arboretum, Gisborne; ‘Target’ exhibited at Headland Sculpture On The Gulf – winner of the People’s Choice award; 2015-2016 Sculpture in the Gardens, ‘Ratiti Mya’ was purchased to become part of the permanent collection at the Auckland Botanic Gardens.
