Jimmi Buscombe is a professional artist based in Warrnambool, on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. He specialises in highly detailed, wildlife art, public art, mural & street art, integrating a range of methods and mediums including paint, ink and pastel to create stunningly life-like representations of his subjects.
Jimmi has been commissioned by councils, clients and organisations both locally and internationally to create portraits, street art and public art of native wildlife, and private commissions. Every piece of artwork is treated with much care and consideration.
Jimmi is passionate about visual arts and the important role it plays within a healthy, well-functioning community. For the past eighteen months, he has been an artist in residence at Lyndoch Living, an aged care facility in Warrnambool, Victoria where he is commissioned to create realistic murals of native Australian plants and animals, essentially bringing nature inside to the residents of Lyndoch. The works hold much more meaning and value than the end product of a beautiful mural. Seats and couches are set up around where Jimmi is painting and the residents are encouraged to sit and talk with Jimmi as he creates his works of art. The interaction with the residents is where the real gold of this project occurs, with many residents spending hours a day offering conversation and gentle words of advice.
Jimmi has also worked on several large scale public art projects around the country, including the Avoca Grain Silo (Vic), the Lismore Water Tower (Vic), the State Government of Victoria’s Pick My Project scheme with a project titled #WildVsWarrnambool in 2019/2020 and works for Werribee Open Range Zoo (Vic).
