Painter to Brisbane - Australia
Joel Fergie also known as ‘The Zookeeper’ is a Brisbane based artist who’s large scale artworks span from inner city urban laneways to remote regional communities throughout Central Australia.
His large scale murals found on water towers and grain silos aim to disassemble the routines of daily life. Through nature, his work looks to bring feelings of positivity to people in public spaces. Growing up in Darwin, Northern Territory, an ever present fascination with the Australian wilderness shaped The Zookeeper’s passion for the environment. Through an adventurous childhood exploring remote communities across northern Australia, The Zookeeper’s art looks to share stories of those which go often under the radar.
