Artist Profile: Marini Ferlazzo – Art For Wildlife Conservation
Marini Ferlazzo is a family run business based in Melbourne that is using it’s growing reputation amongst Hollywood royalty to promote wildlife conservation and environmental causes around the world.
Founded in 2011 by Nathan Ferlazzo, the company creates luxury greeting card sets made from 100% recycled paper alongside a range of other products such as limited edition prints using the highest quality archival papers, colouring books and framed prints, all drawn by renowned Australian artist Nathan Ferlazzo.
Working alongside non-for-profit organisations such as World Animal Protection and the World Wildlife Fund, the company has been able to raise significant funds for animal conservation, whilst also increasing awareness about some of the world most endangered species.
Since the launch of Marini Ferlazzo it has been the family’s commitment to wildlife and environmental conservation that has been the driving force behind the company.
Nathan is always looking for new ways to bring more awareness about these issues to the public and hopes the images will inspire people to learn more about endangered species such as the West African Giraffe and Green Sea Turtle that feature in his work.
And of course being a company so passionate about environmental conservation they are committed to using responsibly sourced and recycled materials in all their products.
Highest Quality Ink Drawing Available
To create these masterpieces Nathan draws using a traditional nib and Indian ink, which is then applied to 100% cotton rag paper. This process produces amazing results with Indian ink being regarded as the highest quality drawing ink available anywhere in the world.
Hollywood Oscars Gift Bag Inclusion
In just 5 years Marini Ferlazzo gift cards have gained such an amazing worldwide reputation and made such an impact that in 2015 they were included in the Hollywood Oscar Winners Gift Bags. And even though the company had to provide these gift cards at their own expense, Nathan knows that the hard work will all be worth it in the end.
“These are the people who can really push our message and give exposure to worthwhile organisations, such as the World Wildlife Fund.”
