Director, Queensland College of Art
Professor Derrick Cherrie commenced with QCA in May 2015. Prior to that, Derrick was Head of the Elam School of Fine Arts, a School of 450 students that sits within the University of Auckland's National Institute of Creative Arts and Industries (NICAI) and is widely perceived to be the premier school of fine arts in New Zealand.
Professor Cherrie is among the leading contemporary artists in New Zealand and has exhibited his work throughout the country. His sculptural work is both imaginative and innovative in its ability to connect the built environment to the human body.
