Established in 2010, Cartel Artists is a collective of talented and experienced artists, skilled in the conception and execution of cinematic art for the film and entertainment industries.

Based in Sydney Australia, and working with producers, directors, production designers and creatives all over the world, Cartel Artists' creative services include concept art, visual development, art direction, illustration, character design, environment design and 2d and 3d digital matte painting.

Whether for pitching, pre-visualisation or production ready art, Cartel Artists is a unique, highly skilled resource for studios or companies working in all areas of the production process.





Cartel Artists was conceived by Evan Shipard growing from an existing collective of talent from Sydney, Australia. Evan, an artist who has worked with teams in Sydney, Los Angeles and New Zealand for two decades brings classical art training and a technical edge to concept art, digital matte painting, and art direction.

The idea spawned from the need for a studio space that was conducive to creativity- a space where the digital and traditional mentality could be fostered with like-minded artists. The boutique has provided art and assets to some of the biggest film, game and commercial productions locally and abroad.
