Crabby art

With their nudie animals on a bike sculpture such a big hit, artists Gillie and Marc have lent Vincent city council three more artworks.

Crab Riders features the familiar anthromorphic dog and rabbit riding giant river crabs. It’s for sale for $90,000, but the NSW artists are offering a long-term loan to Vincent. It’ll go in at Birdwood Square and cost about $10,000 to ship and install.

Cr Ros Harley expressed concern the council was paying big bucks to freight and install what was effectively a publicly funded advertisement for the artists.

“I actually find these three pieces of art quite charming and cheerful and fun,” Cr Matt Buckels countered.
