Thomas Dambo, an exceptional recycling artist from Denmark, has recently travelled to Australia to create a new amazing piece: the giant 3.50m tall sculpture was made from disposable wooden pallets and scrapwood recycled from an old shed in Carrara Market.
The sculpture is called "Steve" and it's a shark. Besides bringing a lot of fun to locals who can now interact with and look at this huge wooden animal, the artist believes that the sculpture might also raise awareness about recycling possibilities. Thomas says:
"It's important to show people how much treasure is hidden in the trash".
He hopes that the size and the beauty of Steve will inspire others to start thinking about the amount of trash they produce and might encourage them to start limiting it.
Fortunately, the shark is not the only sculpture the artist has made! Steve is only a part of a larger project composed by giant animals. It is always exciting to see Thomas' creations and we are happy to have him as part of Book a Street Artist.
