Bear essentials

Bear

[bra_dropcaps style=’dropcap2′]B[/bra_dropcaps]urning Seed’s very own Rangers Team Lead Bear made his mark (er, lolz because his real name is Mark) on Canberra’s Art, Not Apart Festival in March with a massive climbable sculpture — KAOTIKA — built with six tonnes of railway sleepers.

When he’s not being awesome at Seed, Bear is a Canberra-based geographer, carpenter and artist. His agent says he is “most comfortable working with his hands and body to create physical objects he can touch, feel, navigate through or around, manipulate and otherwise interact with”. Respeck for that agent.

Check out his monolithic timber sculpture made from railroad sleepers and towering four metres above the Nishi Gallery in the John Avery Gardens.

We love you Bear and we’re proud of you!

Keep an eye on the Canberra Burners for other creative endeavours coming to Seed.

Do you wanna be like Bear? Or nothing like him? You can do both by getting your own creative arty juices flowing our way and soaking us with your talent via Artery or with a Theme Camp!

Applications have just opened for both Theme Camp rego and art grants.
