OUR mission statement

MADE ON THE LEFT was founded in 2008 by independent designers to support Western Australian creative talent. We hold bi-annual handmade craft markets to showcase local designers.

Being on the left hand side of Australia no longer

means you'll be at a disadvantage.

Our aim is to support all creative designers and events showcasing independent labels. MOTL is a not-for-profit, non-partisan organisation. You may wonder why we promote other markets besides MOTL; it’s because it’s not about us, its about you; the buyers and sellers of indie wares. Here at the blog, you’ll discover up to date information about our latest market, the low-down on some of Perth’s emerging talents, other opportunities for artists and designers and a little bit of fun stuff too. It’s all right here… welcome!

Remake Fig Style

Body art: Kyla Morgan. Painting: Gustav Klimt

The Fig Café has launched a remake competition to inspire. Recreate a famous painting to WIN A FREE MEAL EVERYDAY AT THE FIG FOR A YEAR!

They would like to see a remaking of the composure of one of 5 selected famous paintings with a photo with your special twist – it could be Star Wars, Dungeons and Dragons or just composed with an iconic Perth backdrop...

How you interpret them is up to you, but it should be a recognisable homage to the original. Dress up, accessorise, parody, or plain old micky-take. The funnier the better! They can also be ‘set-ups’ of these paintings, rather than fancy-pants paintings or digital art. Some digital trickery can be used to tidy up your composition, but the scene setting is to be done by you guys!

Check their website for the entry form, details and terms & conditions. The competition runs from 1st Sept – 30th Nov, 2013.
