Chris Calcutt

Introducing Chris Calcutt...

"I am a Stainless Steel Sculptor and Public Artist with over 30 installations situated in prominent locations for State, Local and Regional Governments on the East Coast of Australia, with a further installation more recently now exhibited as public art in Western Australia. I've also made and sold over 300 private commissions.

I was the second person in Queensland to be accredited under the U.S.L. Code as a 'Shipbuilder' with the Department of Transport, which is invaluable experience to me as a Public Artist.

I'm proud to say that I have no rival when it comes to carving and instilling line and form into my stainless steel sculptures. I only use '316' marine grade stainless steel, and Australian Standard approved consumables. My sculptures are vandal proof, everlasting with low maintenance."
