NZ Artist - Nigel Brown - Information Report

In 1949 a new baby was born. His full name was Nigel Roderick Brown and he was born in Invercargill. He spent most of his time in a packing shed because he was raised on a farm.

Did you know that Nigel Brown graduated at Auckland University and went to Elam School Of Fine Arts? This is because he wanted to be a famous artist around the world and today he’s a famous NZ artist.

Nigel uses big and bold things. In nearly all of his artworks, they have letters about NZ in them. He uses big and bold things so people can really feel like they can be in his artworks. A sentence he used was “Each Lost Separate.”

Some of the famous artworks that he has created is the Rural Clothing, Embrace At Sea, Sees art as a mystery growing object, Black Singlet and Let time be still. If you search these names up on google images with Nigel Brown with the name then the artworks will come up.  

Have you ever wondered what he describes himself as? Well he says that he’s expressive and he really makes his paintings look realistic. Did you know that at the age of ten him and his dad went tramping for the very first time in NZ? This is because he wanted to discover more about this new country NZ.

Room 8 Learning Tennis

Tamaki College- Thriller.

Do you like having the chills down your spine? Is the king of pop your idol?  If he is then I believe that you should watch this movie immediately!!!

I believe you should watch this freaky movie because you can watch and listen to music at the same time. Isn’t that cool? As well as that thing, did you know that the song ‘Thriller’ is known around the world? Isn’t that information amazing?

Secondly, if you like zombies and Michael Jackson. You won’t need an ipod, mp3 player, phone or a radio to listen to the song ‘Thriller’.

Another reason is because if you like acting as zombies with your friends or listening to scary zombie music then watch this freaky movie. It’s entertaining, and makes you want to get up and groove along with the movie actors.

This is why you should watch Thriller. If I have persuaded you to watch this movie you can find it at and get in the groove to move.
