Beasts and Creatures

Michael Leunig

Since childhood Leunig has long found great humour and fascination in depicting strange, primal beings from the secret world within. Perhaps all of them may symbolise the more wondrous aspects of our human behaviour: playfulness, sensuality, beastliness, loveliness and other peculiar impulses and aspects without definition or name. Whatever they are, the drawing or painting of these creatures has long been a source of simple pleasure and relief for Leunig – an inventive escape from the predictable banality of life into a cheeky bestiary of prowling delights, sweet humour and innocent absurdities.
