Originally based at the Jamfactory Contemporary Craft and Design, Shantala Chung Gon has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to mentoring, managing and marketing Australian artists and designers.

The Jam Factory was established in 1973 during a boom era for the South Australian arts scene, under a Don Dunstan-led State Government. Don's ethos behind this creative centre was to create a space where emerging artist could undergo a two-year program of training and exploration and be supported along the way. 

Founded on a long-standing passion for art, design and 'beautiful things', Shantala and her team then continued on with CoCo to support those new independent artist and makers who had finished their associateship and were ready to make the next step into the marketplace. 

CoCo's philosophy is to accentuate the importance of local Australian artists by promoting and exhibiting them in Australia and globally through commercial and private clients. We fully endorse the skills and creativity of our artists and know our clients will receive high quality, unique and expertly finished pieces.

"We foster the relationship between art and people by engaging with our clients and by maintaining close relationships with all our artists. This direct and personal contact ensures you will always receive the highest degree of detail and quality, and most importantly have all your desires met." - Shantala Chung Gon, Creative Director.
