b. 1958

Born in Hamilton in 1958, Stuart Griffiths graduated from the University of Canterbury in 1980 with a Diploma in Fine Arts (Sculpture), site specific art installations. Later he developed an interest in public art, which led his practice closer to architecture and landscape design. His skills in masonary also saw him working on the restoration of historic stone structures.

Griffiths has participated in exhibitions throughout New Zealand and internationally, including shows at the Warnambol Art Gallery (Australia) and the Glynllifon Sculpture Park in Caernafon (Wales). He was an assistant administrator for the 1981 ANZART project in Christchurch, and co-curated ANZART in Hobart in 1983.
