Levi Diball

Levi is a Brisbane based emerging Outsider Artist and illustrator. She has been making art for as long as she can remember, using a range of media to express her feelings toward her own experiences and those of others. She uses humour and quirkiness to illustrate the hard and sad parts of her personal and family life. Levi’s art creates awareness around the experience of living with a disability.


Over the past four years, Levi has exhibited in a range of group shows. Some highlights have been showing work at the Brisbane Powerhouse, Brisbane Institute of Art, Jugglers Art Space and HI fi Japan. She regularly exhibits independently or with the Access Arts photography group, The Camera Wanderers, the Brisbane Outsider Artists and Art from the Margins (AFTM).


Levi has received a number of prizes and awards. A highlight was winning the 2015 AFTM Emerging Artist Award through which she had the opportunity to speak with the Queensland premier. Levi’s art is featured in the 2017 AFTM calendar, while her photography has been viewed by the broader Brisbane public on the big screen at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and also at the River Fire Festival on Brisbane’s Southbank.  


In 2017, Levi launched her own website and had her first solo exhibition at Graydon Gallery, New Farm, Brisbane. Levi is also producing a series of themed greeting cards and is in the process of editing an illustrated autobiographical book that she intends to publish.
