Matai Gallery is a celebration of the great New Zealand outdoors.
We make 3D topographical bamboo art maps of New Zealand that represent all those special memories and experiences which connect and provide us with a sense of home and belonging. Our geographical place is the foundation upon which all of these ideas are grown from. We view our art maps as deeply personal representations of these special places that connect us.
Matai Gallery was born in the heart of the Covid-19 pandemic. It was forged by combining the design expertise of Aran at The Furnace and the making skills of Matt and his skilled team at Dimensionz Manufacturing in Carterton. Our Wairarapa workshop is nestled in the heart of Carterton, near the majestic Tararua range which can be seen from almost every window (how’s that for inspiration!).
With a strong focus on sustainability, our maps help to ensure the preservation of this wonderful country for all previous, current and future generations. Our love letter to New Zealand.
