Last Friday Eco Outdoor Melbourne hosted the first of our annual Architectural Lunch Series celebrating creativity with a selection of Melbourne’s top architects and designers. The lunch series centres around ‘exploring the creative process’ and the guest speaker this year is Joshua Yeldham,  a prominent and highly influential Australian artist. Josh works across painting, photography, drawing and sculpture and is the author of a truly beautiful and intimate journal called Surrender: A journal for my daughter.

Joshua has been a finalist in the Archibald prize and selected five times for the Wynne Landscape prize at the Art Gallery of NSW. In 2014 Manly Gallery and Museum held a twenty-year survey of Yeldham’s work and another Survey and residency is planned for Tweed River Art Gallery in 2017.  Joshua has just returned from his first solo show in London to promote Surrender at the Sydney Writers Festival.

As you know we’re passionate about life outdoors and Josh Yeldham is the perfect fit for us. Josh draws his inspiration from the outdoors and his notions of living amongst the natural environment and being open to the creativity it brings;  made for a heartfelt and creatively energising experience.
