Jon Campbell has injected a healthy dose of humour to the Australian art world in the last 30 years, poking fun at the Australian vernacular and the phrases and slang we use every day. His works such as Yeah, Chicken Parma and Pot, Pure Bewdy and Beer O'Clock tip a hat to suburbia (Jon grew up in the northern suburbs of Melbourne). We have been lucky enough to work with Jon since 2009 making everything from stubby holders, beach towels and even condoms.
