Six years after its inception, New Zealand art agency International Rescue has made its expansion to Australia.
Auckland artist agency International Rescue has opened an office in Sydney, with an increased roster of Australian photographers and illustrators.
Agent/Producer Hannah Tatton will maintain the Australian roster and service from their new Surry Hills office.
“Hannah’s been with International Rescue for some time now and has been an integral part of the company since she joined. She’s an excellent agent and producer who’s extremely passionate about art and therefore prefect for the role,” says Executive Producer Rob Finn.
The move comes as a natural progression to better serve their Australian clients and artists.
All artists are represented exclusively throughout Australasia and are either New Zealanders or Australians living locally or abroad.
“It’s great to be launching IR in Sydney. We see Australasia as one territory and its good to be able to offer an exchange of artists and service, both ways,” says Hannah. “There’s some incredibly talented artists right here in Australasia and we’re looking forward to working with them.”
New photographers include Urs Buhlman, Stephen Stewart, Jeremy Blincoe, Damien Bredberg and Guys Coombes.
New illustrators include Adam Turnbull, Josh Dykgraaf, Glenn Thomas, Henrietta Harris, Max Thompson, Toby Morris and paper artist Emma van Leest.
