Eav’s portfolio

I work with various media to create art in support of climate justice.

Comics and cartoons

My comics and cartoons are all about the way that people and ecosystems are intertwined. Whether that’s fictional explorations of place, collaging items foraged from ecosytems and making my own inks to fulfilling commissions to add joy and spirit to environmental science.

Podcasts

I am a producer at the Climactic Collective – an inclusive and non-hierarchical group making podcasts about the climate movement in Oceania and beyond.

Eav Brennan makes rubbish portraits Art Breaker

This episode is an interview from climactic member and artist Eav Brennan. Eav's spent the last year interviewing some climate leaders and making upcycled portraits of them. In this episode, Mark and Eav run through the portrait subjects and the stories that stuck with Eav, as well as touching on the long history of textile art as a medium of social change.

Upcycled art

I have quite a lot of access to excess textile waste (known as deadstock) and timber and so make artwork that supports or takes action for the climate movement. My upcycled works have been showcased at TEDxDarlinghurst and Reverse Garbage and in the Craftivist Collective 2020 yearbook as well as being a Creative Power Awardee.
