The man with the plan! Since establishing Shotgun Studios in 2015, Nathan has been working hard to expand relationships with artists and art organisations while developing a vibrant local community of creatives. No easy feat without resilient passion and vision to bring it all to life. With a ready grin and solid streak of mischief, Nathan is an original fixture of the notorious Shotgun launch parties, where spontaneous absurdity and merriment are just the beginning… Hailing from New Zealand and with the stature of an All Black, just look for all 6.10ft of him in the crowd.
A New Zealand born rudderless hippie with a spirit for travel, Isaac’s explored and lived in many places throughout the world. During a 2-year stint in the desert of Western Australia, AKA middle of nowhere, he started painting - and hasn’t stopped since! His background lies in graphic design after studying at Auckland University of Technology. His art practice has since developed into the confines of fine art, blending design elements with traditional mediums. He brings a friendly and welcoming vibe to Shotgun Studios with an obsessive attention to detail.
