Artist Graeme Stevenson receives Order of Australia Medal for his contributions to the Australian and Global Art Community
Graeme Stevenson of Murwillumbah, NSW, has received the Order of Australia Medal on January 26th, 2017, for his ongoing contributions to the artistic community, not just in Australia but around the world. His company, Put Some Colour In Your Life, has been filming the talented artists of Australia and presenting them to a worldwide audience now for the past six years.
Beginning on the Gold Coast in 2010, Graeme created Put Some Colour In Your Life with the hopes of creating a video library of the artists of the world, to preserve for future generations. His efforts have not only led to the television series creating more than 200 episodes, while travelling from Australia to New Zealand and the United States, but have now been recognized nationally with his receiving of the OAM.
‘It’s a fantastic honor,’ said Stevenson, a lifelong artist himself, ‘not just for me but for all artists. I started this journey hoping to bring a little colour to the world and preserve some of the great talents out there. To be recognized for that is tremendous. I almost can’t believe it.’
Stevenson has spent the past six years working tirelessly to get the television series across the globe, partnering with companies such as PRINCETON ARTIST BRUSH CO. and ROYAL TALENS and a number of other major art brands across the world, to film incredible artists from Australia to New Zealand and the United States. With new film crews coming on board in the USA, U.K, Canada, India and a number of European countries, Put Some Colour In Your Life promises to become one of the biggest names in the global artistic community.
An artist from the age of twelve, Stevenson has spent his life travelling the world with a paintbrush in hand. As some of the great artists he’d admired all his career began to pass, he realized it was time for a means of preserving their incredible talents and legacy so future generations might one day learn from masters of the arts.
