RESPECTED graffiti artist Tim Phibs is bringing his eye for captivating street art to Bermagui’s Sculpture on the Edge next month.
Phibs will be creating artworks on two large plywood structures that will be exhibited on Endeavour Point Headland during the annual celebration of sculpture.
As well as his large graffiti pieces, Phibs will also conduct a workshop in a local school said Sculpture on the Edge coordinator Jan Ireland.
Phibs has exhibited his work right around Australia as well as overseas.
In 2012 he won first prize in the Leichardt City Council Wall 2 Wall competition and in 2010 had 11 works selected for the National Gallery of Australia’s permanent collection in Canberra.
On his CV, Phibs says “I have facilitated numerous workshops with primary and secondary school children.
“I’ve also worked with juvenile justice and ‘kids at risk’ to try and promote the positive and creative aspect of street art/art in public space.”
Sculpture on the Edge will run in Bermagui from March 1-10.
Large sculptures will be displayed on Endeavour Point Headland, Dickinson Park and Horseshoe Bay beach, while a small sculpture exhibition will be held in the Bermagui Community Centre.
