Lost Dogs Art

Dog Sculpture spotted at About Life Natural Market Place Cammeray

We were fascinated with the dog sculpture outside About Life Market Place, so we tracked down the creators... the sculpture is by Gillie and Marc Shattner which led to an interesting article about their street art dogs - from Gillie and Marc's blog... “WE ARE HUGE SUPPORTERS OF BRINGING ART ON THE STREETS AND MAKING IT REALLY ACCESSIBLE.” All but three out of the 100 fibreglass dog sculptures planted around the greater Sydney region have been stolen in recent months, revealing that people will go to any length to secure themselves a quirky piece of contemporary art. The sculptures were part of an unusual social experiment conducted by contemporary artists Gillie and Marc Schattner to determine who would steal public art. "Marc and I are huge supporters of bringing art on the streets and making it really accessible," Gillie said. "Honest to god, we never expected the works to go that fast."
