Exhibiting a collection upwards of 100 unique, wooden, and metal sculptures.
Adam Pippos is a Gold Coast-based artist with a unique style and creativity all his own. Adam has honed his skills since he was a little boy, wood carving with his grandfather. He is an accomplished carpenter with additional skills in metal work, welding, and upholstery.
Adam will display his collection of upwards of 100 unique, wooden, and metal sculptures at Kirra Community and Cultural Centre from the 6 – 16 July from 9 – 5pm daily.
Stemming from a background in cabinet making, Adam is dedicated to delivering eclectic pieces, some more abstract and others designed to be functional, and architectural furniture pieces.
From small objects to life-size figures and furniture pieces, each wooden and metal sculpture has been hand-crafted by Adam himself, using chisels, chainsaws, and polish as his creative tools. Much of the wood that Adam uses is recycled hardwoods, many of which are over 100 years old.
With a love for the martial arts, some of Adam’s most iconic pieces are influenced by samurai and warrior swords. Adam’s “out of the box” creativity and imagination knows no bounds as he continues to deliver and create inspiring and impressive works that are truly representative of his skill and craftsmanship.
Adam says his passion and drive to create things comes from a quote he once read – “What can be imagined can be achieved”.
Adam would like to acknowledge the support that he has received over several years from the Oxenford Men’s Shed and Community Housing Limited.
