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!

52 Week Illustration Challenge exhibition

The 52 Week Illustration Challenge commenced in January 2014 with children’s author, Tania McCartney, challenging herself to produce an image per week for 52 weeks. The challenge has since grown to a Facebook group with more than 1800 members from across the globe contributing images on a weekly basis. Themes range from selfies to sandcastles and provide artists with a subject, whilst leaving the creative execution to them. 
The exhibition features one carefully selected piece from each of the 52 themes in 2014. Range of art include: sketches, oil paintings, watercolour and acrylic, coloured pencil, collage, printing (ie collagraphs and gelatine prints) varied digital art, stippling, crosshatching, ink work, line work, clay work, 3D paper crafting, dioramas and even food creations.

This exhibition will be on display from Monday 9 until Friday 27 March 2015 at Brookfield Place, 125 St Georges Tce, Perth, 7am - 7pm.
