100 ARTWORKS for a KOALA

We are close to finishing the first stage of a project called 100 ARTWORKS for a KOALA

The concept: 100 Australian based artists to provide an original artwork –  painting, collage, photography, digital, street art, sculpture, glass, ceramic…  featuring a koala, Eucalyptus or bush fires …or a combination. From the beauty of nature and the cuteness of a koala to the disturbing realities of loss of habitat, disease, destructive fire, drought climate change and the real threat of extinction for the koala in the wild.  We are interested in the artist’s portrayal of the world of the koala.

We are close to having our 100 artist, from all over Australia, confirmed.  A fantastic response in such a short time. Thank you. Originals needed by end of August  2020. See the list below and an example of some of their work in the gallery [nb these are not necessarily the originals which will go to auction but an example of the artist’s style]. The final images would be used for a book / exhibition catalogue, limited edition fine prints, posters, postKards, greeting Kards and various merchandise.

The originals to be sold at an international auction in the US (to be confirmed but planning on Australia Day 2021);  the No 1 of the limited editions  [A2] to form the basis of a travelling exhibition to tour Australia at the end of 2020 and throughout 2021 at 100 venues including museums, galleries, public spaces, community halls, hotels, clubs,  zoos, sanctuaries, eucalyptus forests and other inspiring locations.

Revenue generated is shared between the artist and Living with Koalas (some artists are happy to provide pro bono). We will use the funds generated for our awareness programmes and school visits and well as funding our koala food tree nurturing and planting programme.

Every item we sell (Australian designed and printed / manufactured) buys at least one koala food tree –  some items fund more trees … to be planted where koalas need them most. We think the 100 ARTWORKS for a KOALA will fund the growing of 100,000 koala food trees.

The difference between human action and inaction for a koala is extinction… now a reality with many areas of Australia reporting local extinctions. Australian artisans can, and do, play an active part in conservation.

100 ARTWORKS for a KOALA – the artists… so far

The following are some of Australian based artists who will be participating in the 100 ARTWORKS for a KOALA. We will use this space to add a small res image of the pieces they will be supplying as originals. In the meantime THANKS from a KOALA for their support. If you are an Australian based artist and would like to be a part of this project please contact Living with Koalas.
