Wayne Haag graduated from Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology with distinction in 1994 with a BA in Illustrative Photography.
His RMIT portfolio led to matte painting on The Fifth Element and Red Corner whilst at Digital Domain in Los Angeles. A return to Melbourne saw work with Complete Post then another shift to Sydney for Farscape Season 1 TV series with Garner Maclennan Design. The next major film work took Wayne to New Zealand for Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy at Weta FX where he was responsible for several of the key shots of the film.
Upon his return to Sydney, Wayne then co-founded Emerald City Design in 2003 and served as its Creative Director for two years before moving back to freelance work. He was responsible for award winning TVC designs for clients such as Singapore Airlines, Sony and Telstra.
A move into Production Design for the animated feature The Fourth Magi was next but the project was cancelled before going to production.
Book cover artwork for major publishers, a series of large scale oil paintings for a mural project and private painting commissions round out his professional work.
Wayne’s focus is now on creating epic genre Oil Paintings that are typical of the images seen in his film work.
