Additional Information

Koala – hand painted, ready to hang Aboriginal art of the Koala and Joey. Painted by Grace Brown, koalas are very close to her heart because she grew up with these animals. She is very saddened because of the recent bushfires and the many animals lost. This artwork has been painted on artists hardboard. It was created as mixed media painting, including gold leaf placed on the leaves of the gumtree leaves, signifying how important they are to the Koala. Many hours of fine handprinted lines and dots make up this artwork. Hundreds of traditional black hand-painted 3D dots surround the painting representing all the Koalas lost and millions of acres of trees lost in the 2019/2020 fires in Australia.

One of the most famous animals in the world, loved for it’s cuteness, but how many people realise that the word Koala is an Aboriginal word, although there are many different languages spoken by Aboriginal people throughout the country.The miss-pronounced word actually comes from the Dharug word, gula/coola/koolah which means no water or no drink. Like all marsupial babies, baby koalas are called joeys.

Our much loved koalas, with their stout, tailless body, large head with round fluffy ears and large spoon-shaped nose, are instantly recognisable as a symbol of Australia. Koalas are an integral part of the Australian bush – perched high up in the branches of gum trees sleeping for up to 20 hours a day. Sadly, being iconic and symbolic is not enough to save the koala from the threat of extinction.

There is much we can do to save the animals and the many other species that inhabit the Australian bush so Grace has embarked on a series of Australian animals and flora to highlight how precious these animals are.

A percentage of the sale of the painting Koala will go the saving wildlife in Australia. Prints will also be available in the future.
