2019 – Pastel Wildlife

Pastel Wildlife was painted in late 2019 by artist Brentos – and features a plethora of pastel-coloured wild Australian animals such as a cockatoo and a kangaroo, flanking a surfing koala.

We asked Brentos about his inspiration behind the work and he told us:

Bondi is a place of fun, sun and surf and for my piece I wanted to capture that same playful spirit and make it appeal to visitors and locals of all ages. I filled my work with quirky Aussie wildlife characters with a backdrop of abstract trees and boomerang shapes.

The surfing Koala is the hero of the piece and this little guy is a recurring motif in my work which serves as a subtle nod to the plight of our beautiful Koalas. The piece was installed over 3 days with paint and brushes.
