A Peek into the Imaginative World of Noferin

A friend visiting Sydney recently spotted the work of Noferin, which I think must have been the exhibition at a retail/gallery space on George Street called The Galeries

Noferin is the successful collaboration of husband and wife team, Nick and Candy. Together they have created an imaginative world of the 'Pecanpals', inhabitants of Carrara Island. The journey has taken them from a background in graphic design and environmental science, to the fine art of painting, wood sculpture, and literature. Noferin's acrylic paintings are quite striking, and I have picked out a couple of my favourites to show you.

Noferin's character creations are available as wooden designer toys and plush toys. Visit the Noferin website for more information, or visit Flickr for more images.

Thanks to Nick and Candy of Noferin for permission to show these artworks.
