Tony Ogle was born in Auckland 1959. After completing a Graphic Design Diploma at Auckland Institute of Technology he helped Tom Burnett establish a screenprint workshop in Matapouri Bay, Northland. He produced many prints and paintings of coastal scenery.
In 1984 he returned to Campbell's Bay and set up his studio, where he produced prints of farmland, beach and sea scenes, and introduced figurative subject matter.
Since returning to New Zealand he has drawn inspiration from New Zealands unique landscape, concentrating on screenprints and paintings of the more inaccessible parts of New Zealand's land and coastlines.
'Screenprinting allows me to express my love of colour and the New Zealand landscape in a direct and graphic manner'. This style has consequently made Tony Ogle a thriving artist producing bold renditions that portray New Zealand's essence.
