John Olsen’s work is informed by a deep reverence for the environment. Throughout his work, this passion for the land and the animals which inhabit it, is what cuts deepest. Here, he joyfully depicts a group of giraffes.
Olsen first began sketching giraffes on his trip to Kenya, where he was struck with their unusual silhouette and pattern. At once otherworldly and strangely reminiscent of human awkwardness, they became mainstays in his visual vocabulary. Barely able to stay on the page, this lively ode to graceful creatures is the artist at his most recognisable.
Olsen is among Australia’s most recognised and iconic artists. With a career spanning over 50 years, his work is celebrated and collected by all major Australian institutions. This collectable limited edition print is created with the finest museum quality archival materials and is hand signed by the artist. It also comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from the publisher so that you can document your collection.
