About Us

Ironic Art Ltd was established during the early nineties and has developed its own style of wrought iron products over the many years. In particular the various signs, menu boards, drive and entrance gates are still well recognisable throughout the city of Christchurch and beyond.

The timeless designs and high quality of craftsmanship of all of our work is really a reflection of the dedication and devotion of every single team member towards the individual projects and the materials used.

With a combined experience of more than 20 years in this field we are able to satisfy all the individual requirements of our clients.

Stuart Sinclair co-owner of the company, brings a lifetime love of drawing characters and scenes to the business. He trained for 5 years in the UK, attending technical college there and gaining 10 national certificates in various engineering subjects. He served his apprenticeship with a Scottish company where he designed and fabricated his own engineering projects. After that Stuart moved to New Zealand and started working at Ironic Art.

In 2003 Stuart and his father Colin Sinclair took over the business, his outstanding ability to design and create the various products allowed the company to go from strength to strength. Stuart is ably supported in this role by Jaron Tabak.

After a few years of absence Jaron has found his way back to Ironic Art. He was actually the first apprentice to learn at Ironic Art, before he moved on to work for a local engineering company. He was successfully running his own company for some time before he got reunited with Ironic Art. His claim to fame is that he played a major part in creating our Ironic Art crane and sign, which is now well regonised throughout Christchurch.

Stuart and Jaron have formed a partnership in the company - now trading as IRONIC ART (2011) Ltd.
