I’ve long been a fan of street art and often go in search of it, especially in cities where it’s easier to find lots of pieces in a concentrated area. You can however find walls in suburbs, towns and the odd standout single piece like silos or water towers adorned with spectacular artwork all around Australia.
Take a drive through the Adelaide Hills region in South Australia, and you will soon notice sculptures of all shapes, sizes and styles popping up in public places. These eye catching works of art in chiselled stone have been crafted by master sculptors over the past few years during International Sculpture Symposiums held at The Cedars (once the home of Sir Hans Heysen, Australian landscape artist) near Hahndorf in the hills. The pieces were all created by the artists over the few weeks of the symposiums held in 2012, 2014 and 2016.
