Zaishu Grande Finale
For the last 6 years over 1000 artists in 22 countries have been busy painting, printing, sticking, doodling and generally adding their bit of creativity to the Zaishu art project. Next week we have our Grand Finale at the Australian Centre of Contemporary Art where we first launched the project back in 2004.
For our special send off we have the last 8 individually painted Zaishu seats by some of Australia's most talked about illustrators and artists. Amber Wallis, Beci Orpin, Rebecca Wetzler Oslo Davis, Tin&Ed, Karl Maier, Elke Kramer and Tai Snaith. And, there’s one more Zaishu being made by Polly Dedman which will be the first prize for the raffle being drawn at the end of the night.
100% of sales will be donated to Shebeen, Australia's first non-profit bar as part of their Pin Up Your Doodle fund raising art auction, run by Ben Clark of Sotherby's Australia.
6 - 8pm Wednesday November 24
Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, 111 Sturt Street, Melbourne
