Denis Robinson worked as a designer in the marketing industry before continuing his career in Europe, where he also acted as a tour guide in the great art museums. Back home, he established the first New Zealand design office/creative studio in Wellington. More recently he has occupied managerial positions in major art dealer galleries in Auckland, and he initiated the inaugural Auckland Art Fair (2005). His work gives him unique access to the portfolios of New Zealand's most popular contemporary artists, many of whom are championed in this book. Denis lives on the Hibiscus Coast and operates his own art and design consultancy, connecting artists with patrons and art lovers. In his spare time he attempts to paint.
