Cyril Maude 1914 - 1987
Cyril was born and raised Oamaru. When he left school in 1930 he worked for The Union Bank, beginning his career in banking. He is remembered during this time for his witty illustration of local identities prepared for various newspapers.
Always in the wings was Cyril's desire to record his thoughts and observations -always he wanted to draw.
Through his screen-prints Cyril combined his love and knowledge of Maori Rock Art with his knowledge of history and his sense of humour.
