“This is the Price of Palm Oil” – creating a mural for Orangutan Caring Week 2016 at Melbourne Zoo


“This is the Price of Palm Oil”, painted in acrylic on wet media acetate, depicts the wildlife of Sumatra and Borneo that shares the forests with orang-utans. All that stands to be lost through deforestation for the unsustainable production of Palm Oil.


Each panel measures approximately 60cm deep by 140cm long.

Work in progress in the studio…in between sessions of painting at the Melbourne Zoo Orangutan Sanctuary, with the acetate panels stretched across the exhibit windows so the orang-utans could watch.
