Thursday, November 1st, 2012 - Marcus Tarrant and Joe Levine
In November, one of Australia's most respected artists, Joe Levine, will be holding a special auction of his paintings. 50% of the proceeds from the auction will be donated to the Royal Children's Hospital.

One of Australia’s most respected artists, Joe Levine, has been constant demand for nearly 50 years as a freelance illustrator by the country’s leading advertising agencies, art studios and publishers. The disciplines and demands of commercial art are exhibited in the precise detail of many of these paintings that are, indeed, fine works of art.

Joe has been a regular exhibitor at the Collins Street Gallery over the last 20 years and his paintings have been acquired by numerous discerning private and corporate collectors of fine art in Australia and around the world.

This exhibition combines a series of oil and watercolour paintings of birds and oil paintings of tree trunks which are being offered for sale at a private Auction, appropriately titled ‘The Birds and The Trees’.

In appreciation of exceptional care provided to Joe’s daughter over the years, he will be donating 50% of the proceeds from the auction to the Royal Children’s Hospital.

Details and an invitation to the auction (to be held in a city rooftop marquee) can be found on the artist’s web site www.JoeLevine.com.au.

Marcus Tarrant and Joe Levine


Marcus Tarrant has been a friend of Joe Levine for more than 30 years. As one of Australia’s most prominent Creative Directors, he frequently commissioned illustrations from Joe, including an entire Melbourne tram to promote Mt. Buller. “Joe is one of those people who has never pushed himself forward and, consequently, his fine art has never received the recognition it deserves”, Marcus says. “Although he has been renowned as one of Australia’s finest commercial artists, his paintings have been exhibited rarely at selected galleries and acquired by a few discerning collectors. Having photographed some of the trees that are featured in this collection, I still marvel at how an artist of Joe’s immense talent can improve on nature, seemingly effortlessly.”
