Humour of the Heart
Australian living treasure, Michael Leunig, in the wonderfully regressive yet complex style that he is known and loved for, champions the simple joys of human nature and the wider natural world: – a child with a flower, a wide embrace, a song.
An acclaimed cartoonist, writer, philosopher, painter and artist, Leunig’s career has spanned over fifty years. His work has been described – in the artist’s own words – as “messy, mystical and primal”, and often draws upon the things that Leunig loves most: nature; talking to strangers in the street; walks in the local park; morning coffees.
Leunig’s prints, paintings and drawings have been exhibited broadly, and are currently held in both public and private collections.
