Six illustrators and artists, representing six different regions of the world, are sharing their vision of Zero Hunger to spread key messages of the FAO’s mandate.

These beautiful illustrations were unveiled during World Food Week 2018 (15th October) in an effort to raise awareness and help the FAO achieve their overarching goal of ‘Working for Zero Hunger’. Each artist has taken an important message and translated it into a colourful and striking illustration to decorate t-shirts, mugs, notebooks and canvas tote bags. Representing a different continent as well as a cross-cultural view of the world, each illustrator creates his or her work in spaces that defy simple definitions of place or identity, while still remaining deeply rooted in culture of origin. The artists have a strong and personal commitment to better our world.

About the Artists:

The right to food is a human right.

Diana Ejaita, of Nigerian parentage, was chosen to represent Africa. She is a designer and artist whose work draws on the centuries-old Nsibidi system of symbols and ideograms, indigenous to Southeast Nigeria. As a child of migration, she is driven by the issues of colonial and post-colonial effects, discrimination and identity.    

Save food.

Nik Neves, who represents Latin America, was born in Brazil. He is an illustrator, publisher and comic artist who has worked for National Geographic, Rolling Stone and more. His fresh, colourful and engaging drawings, which range from food to mind maps to machines, reflect an incessant curiosity about the world that we live in and how we relate to it.

Small farmers feed the world.

Ying Hui Tan, born in Malaysia, represents Asia. A children’s picture book illustrator, she is deeply inspired by nature and animal-related themes and her work is infused with colour and light, reflecting the themes of love and kindness that she seeks to share. She combines traditional painting with digital techniques. 

Migration should be a choice, not a necessity.

Zoulikha Bouabdellah, who grew up in Algiers, represents the Middle East and North Africa. She creates installations, videos and drawings that deconstruct dominant representations to reflect upon culture, geopolitics, industrialization and the status of women. She has been awarded the Abraaj Capital and Prix Meurice prizes for her work.

Our climate is changing – your choices matter.

Fernando Del Hambre, representing Europe, is a Spanish illustrator, art director, animator and independent publisher, whose quirky and colourful artwork situates him on the threshold between the familiar and the alien, the artificial and the natural. His illustrations have already featured in work for FAO and UNESCO. 

Be the Zero Hunger Generation.

Gary Taxali, representing North America, is of Indian-Canadian origins. He makes mixed-media works and paintings with a retro aesthetic, narrating his “preoccupation of constant paradoxes such as human relationships, love, isolation […] economic despair and frustration.” In 2012, Canada minted quarters featuring six of his designs.

Eurospan Cooks: Pulses

FAO_Pulses


The nights are drawing in and it's cold outside... What better way to prepare for winter than with this lovely, illustrated collection of recipes from around the world? From Cuba to Pakistan, there's something in Pulses to warm all palates and suitable for multiple dietary requirements.

Pulses from the Food and Agriculture Orgnization of the United Nations (FAO) is a handy and straighforward collection of more than 30 recipes for pulses from around the world. And if you think this simply means baked beans or daal, then you have a pleasant suprise coming, as the books walks us through traditions and flavours from every continent. Pulses are a great tasty way to get your protein, without sacrificing either your wallet or your waistline, and the lovely illustrations throughout the book plus commentary from the contributing chefs make for a fascinating read as you cook.

Feeling in need of some Latin warmth, we tried the classic Cuban-style Picadillo sauce. Combining black beans, onions, garlic, chili, capers, raisins, olives, tomatoes and lots of cumin, this is a crowd-pleaser that goes perfectly with rice, as an acompaniment to a main meat dish, or just by itself.

To coincide with the release of mathematician and award-winning children's book author Richard Evan Schwartz’s latest book Life on the Infinite Farm, we’ve been looking at books which encourage children to dip their toes into the wonderful world of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

Schwartz’s fifth book for children, Life on the Infinite Farm teaches about infinity and curved space through stories of whimsical farm animals. Join Gracie, the shoe-loving cow with infinitely many feet, Hammerwood, the gum-loving crocodile with an endless mouth, and their friends as they navigate the challenges that come with being infinitely large. 

Did you ever wonder why some insects can walk on water? Or how the Ancient Egyptians made mummies? Are you curious about why a guitar sounds different from a flute? Gather some everyday materials from around your home and find out the answers with 50 kid-approved science activities from CSIRO Publishing. Discover more about the world of science with Hands-On Science by making dancing slime, rubbery bones, a ping pong ball shooter, ghastly ghostly photos, fizzy dinosaur eggs and a lemon battery.


Zobi and the Zoox tells the tale of Zobi, a brave rhizobia bacterium who teams up with a family of slow but steady zoox (zooxanthellae) when her home comes under threat from a warming ocean and as the coral bleaches, everyone begins to starve. 

Zobi and the Zoox joins CSIRO’s growing collection of books for primary school-aged children which includes Phasmid, The Great Lizard Trek, Bouncing Back and The Squid, the Vibrio and the Moon which is publishing early in 2019.
