About

Jodi MagiThank you for taking the time to view my work.

A bit about me: I am an Australian who loves a creative challenge, appreciates the stimulation travel brings and believes in the importance of questions.

My past life was spent as a graphic designer in Melbourne and Perth before I decided to focus on less commercially minded artistic pursuits.

In 2012, I moved Abu Dhabi with my partner in crime where I teach of art, illustration and graphic design part-time at Zayed University.

Though my students are very dear to me, my first love is the creation of ‘art’ in its many forms. I have exhibited in Melbourne, Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Zagreb and will have a collaborative animation project included in ISEA 2014 (International Symposium or Electronic Art).

Highlights of 2014 include the publication by Tate, U.S.A. of ‘Rich Man, Poor Man‘, a children’s book I illustrated, by J.R. Poulter and the completion of Masters of Visual Art, through Monash University, Australia.

I am currently working on a body of oil paintings which discuss human attitudes towards our natural resources – often through the wise eyes of animal protagonists. Art can be a mirror, and a catalyst for change: If even one of my pieces provokes an audience member to question the status quo, I would feel the many hours in the studio could somehow be justified.

I am happy to consider professional commissions or answer any questions you might have about my work.

    From what I’ve seen so far: your hand, eye and brain are superbly capable of moving the beauty of your tremendous imagination to canvas and paper…your work is outstanding…
    You are an inspiration
