If you’re in Subiaco, keep an eye out for Bille Bob.
Bille Bob is not your average resident of the suburb – he is actually a giant wooden sculpture created by Danish artist Thomas Dambo as part of the Giants of Mandurah exhibition. This exhibition is the first of its kind in Australia and showcases Dambo’s unique and captivating artworks, each of which is made using recycled and locally sourced materials.
Thomas Dambo is not just an artist, but also an environmental activist. He uses his art to raise awareness about the beauty, diversity and importance of the natural world. His works often feature whimsical creatures and characters, each with its own story and personality. Billie Bob, who seems to have gotten lost in Subiaco, is one of these characters and is sure to bring a smile to your face as you discover him in his secret location.
The Giants of Mandurah exhibition is free to visit and will be on display in Subiaco for at least a year. It’s a fun game of self-discovery as you seek out the different giants, each one hiding in a different location. To help you on your quest, you can visit the exhibition’s website to get more information on where to find the giants and to download your own copy of the Travellers’ Companion. This guide will provide you with everything you need to know to find Bille Bob and his friends and make the most of your visit.
