In cooperation with Japingka Aboriginal Art Gallery in Fremantle, Western Australia, we published a 2014 calendar. It featured 12 beautiful examples of traditional aboriginal art. Authors of the presented works are Sarrita King, Jorna Newberry and Anna Petyarre.
In cooperation with Japingka Aboriginal Art Gallery in Fremantle, Western Australia, we published a 2012 calendar. It featured inspiring works of four Australian indigenous artists: George Ward Tjungurrayi, Jack Dale Mengenen, Lorna Napurrula Fencer and Katherine Marshall Nakamarra.
In the 2012 calendar we continue Australian themes that we presented in the previous years – starting from photographs of amazing Australian landscape, through fanciful masterpieces of Australian primitivist, ending with interpretations of Australian motives in works of Polish artists.
In cooperation with the Print and Poster Gallery, we prepared a 2011 calendar entitled “Australia and Water”. We were pleased to show 12 beautiful examples of oceans, lakes, rivers and the so-called billabongs (traditional ponds used for irrigation by Aborigines).
Australians think a lot about water. There is either a shortage of it, so it’s a drought, or it’s too much of it, leading to a flood. The way Australians spend free time is connected with water, thus more than 90% of them live close to the coast. Australia also has the most advanced and efficient water system around the world, necessary for the functioning of immense agricultural industry on such a dry continent.
In cooperation with the Print and Poster Gallery, we published a 2010 calendar inspired by Australia. It was entitled “Magical Australia”.
Australia, being 25 times bigger than Poland, is the least populated continent on Earth and it’s completely uninhabited in the majority of its territory. More than 90% of Australia’s twenty-million population live in five coastal cities. Unsurprisingly, our “Magical Australia” calendar is almost completely deprived of human footprints. Even if they are present, it’s by accident and diminished by the magnitude of this primitive and very beautiful continent.
In cooperation with the Print and Poster Gallery, we published a 2009 calendar inspired by Australia. On that occasion original masterpieces of Polish painters and graphic artists were created.
The calendar featured very inspiring works by Jacek Sroka, Franciszek Masluszczak, Andrzej Dudzinski, Piotr Fafrowicz, Edward Dwurnik and other great artists.
In cooperation with the Print and Poster Gallery, we prepared a 2008 calendar presenting works of an Australian artist – Narelle Wildman.
Recognised as a top Australian naïve artist, Narelle was born in 1946 and grew up in Killara, on a very green north side of the bay in Sydney. Narelle’s works are full of her love to the nature that captures the heart and gives pleasure to anyone who sees her works. Her paintings are enjoyed by people of any age, owing to a typical Australian optimism, joy and cheerful sense of humour her paintings are saturated with.
In cooperation with the Print and Poster Gallery, we prepared a 2007 calendar entitled “Supporting the Art of Medicine”. The calendar features works by Andrzej Dudzinski.
Andrzej Dudzinski was born in 1945 in Sopot. In 1966-68 he studied architecture at the Gdansk University of Technology, and then interior design and graphics at the Gdansk Academy of Fine Arts. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw at the faculty of graphic arts under the guidance of Henryk Tomaszewski. He is involved in painting, drawing, newspaper illustrating and photography. In 2001, Andrzej Dudzinski received from the city authorities the title of an honorary citizen of Sopot.
In cooperation with the Print and Poster Gallery and the National Museum in Wroclaw, we published a 2006 calendar entitled “Supporting the Art of Medicine”. The calendar features paintings by Zbigniew Makowski.
Zbigniew Makowski was born in 1930 in Warsaw. In 1950-56 he studied at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts under supervision of Kazimierz Tomorowicz. He is involved in painting and drawing. He is also an author of extremely original, unique hand-made books, and a poet.
