Pamela Irving

Known for her art around Melbourne’s public spaces, Pamela Irving’s work is derived from a mixture of personal experience, myth and imagination.

Best known for Larry La Trobe, a bronze dog sculpture in Melbourne’s City Square and the enormous mosaic reverie, Dreaming with Open Eyes, at Luna Park, the Melbourne-based visual artist has developed an international reputation as a mosaic artist.
Pamela’s work has been presented throughout the world at numerous international conferences and exhibitions.

Her works are represented in public and private collections nationally and internationally, including that of the City of Melbourne, Museum Victoria, Art Bank and numerous regional galleries.

With a Masters of Arts from the University of Melbourne and her love of travelling, Pamela’s experiences are reflected in her evolving body of works, often described as quirky, playful and through-provoking.
