Many consider Thomas Dambo to be the world’s leading recycle artist.

After graduating with a Master's degree in interactive design from Kolding Design School, Thomas began his journey of using recycled materials to create colourful art installations that has been the foundation for his artwork today.
His highly interactive experiences allow individual visitors to express their individuality on a large scale.

From gardens made of recycled plastics to a functioning DIY Christmas market made from commercial refuse,
Thomas creates immersive, interactive and awe-inspiring experiences!

In particular, Thomas is known internationally for his larger-than-life sculptures made entirely from recycled wood.

With 87 sculptures across the world, they've all begun taking a life of its own.

The vision behind Thomas' art is to inspire people to explore, have adventures in nature and demonstrates that trash can be turned into something beautiful!

On one of the few rare occasions, WA isn't having to wait awhile for something epic that has been promised to reach us or trolled with high expectations only to be let down with disappointment.

Thomas Dambo is on his way to Western Australia and Giants Of Mandurah is his first exhibition in Australia!

Come and see an iconic series of his larger-than-life wooden sculptures make a home for themselves amongst picturesque, secret locations throughout Mandurah in the Peel region.

It's a FREE to view, outdoor exhibition that is a celebration of the unique diversity, extraordinary beauty and timely reminder of just how important it is to protect our natural environments such as Mandurah’s globally significant Ramsar-listed wetlands, unique waterways, bushland and wildlife!

Finally, the story of these Giants are intertwined with the creation story of Mandurah, gifted by the region’s Traditional Owners, the Bindjareb people.

Giants of Mandurah opens to the public from 12 November 2022 and the trolls will be around for 12 months.
