Anton Pulvirenti is an Australian artist who work in a representational vein, exploring issues of memory and narrative across the disciplines of drawing, painting and photography.
Pulvirenti refined his skills as an illustrator with David Paulson for seven years in the 90’s. His work draws on his Italian heritage and he is one of the last practioners of the Sicilian art of Carriage painting. Since completing his PHD in painting at the Sydney College of the Arts Pulvirenti’s work has dealt with the unique Italian-Australian experience of interment during World War II and it’s intergenerational transmission to the current day.

photos by (click pic) michael poliza, dennis fast and matthias brieter of polar bears amongst the fireweed in churchill, manitoba. the area has the largest, and most southerly, concentration of the animals on the planet. in late summer and early fall the polar bears make their way to the hudson bay, waiting for it freeze over so they can hunt for seals on the ice. but every year, the ice is forming later and later, forcing the polar bears to go hungry for longer.
