Olaf Mengeringhausen was born and raised in Germany. He immigrated to New Zealand in 2007.

Olaf’s sculpture deal directly with the relationship between the natural and industrial world, the effects of natural elements and the influence of outdoor environment.

Through a range of scale and media Olaf produces both, figurative and abstract works.
Recent work relates to the connectedness of all people, irrespective of their family and cultural backgrounds.

Olaf’s innovative style is reflected in his art. His skill and vision encourage us to go beyond the visual and to experience something new, with space of the own interpretation, humour incorporating.

By using the best materials, and as a qualified master technician, Olaf’s modern and contemporary work is of exceptional quality.

Olaf has exhibited widely over the last years. He has work in private collections nationally and internationally.
