Big Things Down Under

Telescopus – by Dominic Johns

I had the pleasure of meeting Dom at the 2008 SAMA conference held this past March in Miami. From Parramatta Park, Australia, Dominic is just a great guy and definitely passionate about everything he does, as you can tell by his loving embrace of his newest work.

Upon completion this is what Dom has to say: Telescopus is in and I’m feeling very happy now. This project has been approx 1000 hours to bring to fruition and now I’m ready for the next one. Moving the work was a tense experience, but we managed to do it without breaking anything. So get down to the Cairns Esplanard 'nard’ opposite 181 The Esplanade and check it out. The cut face glows in the dark!

WOW! Dominic, that would have to be the most stunning piece of mosaic art I have ever seen. I must check it out next time I'm in Cairns. Should come to Adelaide and do something just as stunning along our coast.
