Gallery: Artists Cardamatis and Saad Create Art With Depth From Native ...


You could say Australian artists Scott Cardamatis and Joseph Saad are like two peas in a pod. Each share a love of nature, and it is this mutual passion that has led them to take a literal approach to landscape art.  Instead of picking up a paint brush, they create contemporary eco artworks made simply from a range of native seed casings.

Woody Pear, Rose Banksia, Red Flowering Gum, vines and wiggle wood are just some of the raw materials they use to create tactile art that exhibits extraordinary depth and texture. The seed casings are sustainably sourced from conservation programs around Australia, and are decoratively placed to reflect the local landscape.

Such is the variety of seed pods used, that up to ten different regions of Australia can be represented in just one single piece of art.  Just three years young, Cardamatis and Saad’s works already adorn the walls of offices, resorts and homes around the world, and plans are afoot to bring an exhibition to the USA later this year.

    I look forward to seeing the USA exhibition. Love to see design using things from nature to create works of art. I would like to create something similar to this for my walls. One of Scott Cardamatis and Joseph Saad pieces would be great in a office designed by trope group
