Baby Koala Jimmy

Right now, Australia is being ravaged by one of the most devastating bushfire seasons the country has ever seen. Koalas are heading towards extinction in New South Wales and southeast Queensland as early as 2050. We must act to protect them now, or they could disappear in a matter of decades.

This artwork was inspired by Crescent Head Jimmy, a baby koala that was rescued and accommodated in a healthy habitat in Koala Hospital, an Australian licenced Wildlife Rehabilitation Facility. This painting comes with an adoption pack from Port Macquarie Koala Hospital.

“Baby Koala” original painting including a koala adoption makes the perfect gift for all art and animal lovers. The special adoption pack includes the painting and personalised adoption certificate with a photo of the adopted koala. This is a symbolic koala adoption, or a “foster” program of 12 month commitment, that goes towards the work with the rescuing and treatment of sick and injured koalas and the release back to their home range where possible. You can choose for the gift pack to be sent directly to you or to your gift recipient. By purchasing this painting you`re not only getting a beautiful piece of art but also helping with the conservation and expansion of the koala habitat.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Kristin Kossi is a German artist living and working in Hamburg. Seeing painting as a way to express herself, she harnesses the beauty of human expressions to create complex oil portraits. She uses a very personal technique that has been perfected in recent years and that distinguishes the style, making it virtually inimitable. Her eye-catching oil portraits are large and prefer heavy layers of oil paint, deconstruction and abstracted forms. Moving with ease from contemporary portraiture to pop art, her acrylic paintings are bright, bold, fun pop art pieces full of style and panache. The artist works with a spatula, overlays multiple layers by using oil, spray paint and other media to create colorful visual worlds.  Kristin Kossi’s works have been shown in solo and group exhibitions, and also been published in numerous magazines including British Vogue, GQ and Grazia.
