3rd place: One Of Us

by Philip McCulloch-Downs

Following on from the incredible success of our 2014 art competition and 2015 design competition; both of which transformed the Atelier, this year Tammam invites artists to create a piece that shows their interpretation of Global Sustainabilty.


Show us what sustainability means to you as an artist, we are looking for creativity, beauty and innovation. Activist art is welcome as are pieces made using reclaimed materials. 


Would your art look good on the walls of London's premier ethical couture atelier?









From "Greed" by Dana Ellyn






























In the run up to Earth Day 2016, we are looking for artwork inspired by the theme of Global Sustainabilty. For House of Tammam, global sustainability means focusing on the world holistically; the truth that human consumption and living standards have exceeded the carrying capacity of the earth, and so, as a result, the environmental resources upon which we depend have been severely compromised; which affects the health of individuals, communities, and the global population. 


We would like you to submit a piece of artwork that encapsulates what global sustainabilty means to you. We welcome pieces created for the competition or existing work.


If materials used are reclaimed, eco or sustainable, please note this in the application form.


Please ensure all artwork can fit within the dimensions 60x40x15cm and no one side exceeding 60cm for ease of transportation
