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. Thank you. See list below and where we have the original already we have linked their name to the artist portfolio on this website where you can view their entry and artist statement about the artwork.

Originals are now being collected from the artists. The final images will be used for a book / exhibition catalogue, limited edition fine prints and possibly 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 – still not affected by COVID –  we have a few back-up plans);  the No 1 of the limited editions  [A1] to form the basis of a travelling exhibition to tour Australia in 2021  and beyond 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
