Simon Kerr

They’re rough but I like to think there’s something in that roughness that’s a diamond.

The Emerging Icons series identifies and celebrates the next generation of Cultural Icons in New Zealand.

In this EI interview, Simon Kerr talks about what he wishes to express with his work, his creative processes and his life beyond crime and prison cells.

“I’ll either be called an artist or a criminal. Just as crime is all or nothing, so will this be”

Simon Kerr is represented by The Art Shed in Napier
