Yvonne Levenston is a Sydney artist focusing on environmental issues.

This is her first solo exhibition – a culmination of many hours of viewing, drawing and photographing Orangutans, Chimpanzees and Gorilla’s around the world.

The exhibition is a reflection of her journeys, her life and the grief of recently losing one of her closest friends – her mum, to cancer. Now an ‘orphan’ Yvonne is contemplating her own presence + absence, as well as the fragility of our closest cousins and humanity through the fragility of the global ecosystems, the impact of consumerism and human footprint on the environment.

Through her practice of printmaking, painting, photography and sculpture, she aims to raise questions about humanity, animal justice and social values.

Yvonne’s artwork has won a selection of awards and has been exhibited independently in over 40 group shows. One of the highlights was curating and exhibiting for Dr Jane Goodall in 2011.

Yvonne’s artwork is regularly selected for environmental and animal welfare charities, and has had five articles written about her work and related fundraising efforts. She is a Guest Speaker and provides artist talks and workshops. Her work is in Private Collections in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, New York, Toronto, Bermuda, China & Luxembourg.

How Can You Help

There are lots of ways you can support orangutans and help ensure the survival of this precious ape.

Adopt an Orangutan

Adopt an Orangutan

Orangutans are endangered and at risk of extinction. Habitat destruction means hundreds of orphan orangutans need to care for every year. You can help by adopting one. Their dedicated ‘nannies’ teach them everything they need to know for when it’s time to release them back to the wild. You can follow their progress through Forest School.
