Warren Viscoe was Born Auckland in 1935. He studied in London at Chelsea College of Art, and then in Canada at the Ontario College of Art. He returned to New Zealand in 1962 and graduated with a Diploma of Fine Arts from Elam School of Fine Art in 1965.
In his early life, before studying, he trained as a builder, and he has an innate understanding of materials and construction. His works are evocative of nature and the environment.
His first exhibition at the Peter McLeavey Gallery was in May 1980, simply titled “Sculpture”. Since that time Warren has been a regular gallery exhibitor.
