A SELECTION of artists set to feature at this year’s SWELL Sculpture Festival have given a sneak peek at the art works set to grace Currumbin beach from the 12 – 21 September.

Now in its 12th year and swelling to 70 artists, SWELL brings awe-inspiring beachside sculpture to the Gold Coast with free live entertainment, workshops, kids activities, performance art, night lighting, artist talks, fire shows and more.


The 10-day festival will see Currumbin Beach transformed into a one kilometre long sculpture park featuring a mix of dynamic public artwork, from monumental to miniscule, by Australian and international artists, including sculptors from the UK, Turkey, Germany, South Korea and Belgium.

SWELL founder and selection panel member Natasha Edwards said the art preview was a great representation of the bold and innovative nature of the festival.

“Everyone is blown away by the standard of work. Each year it gets better and better and the preview of work has just highlighted that,” she said.

“It’s very exciting for us to be able to introduce these artists and showcase the truly outstanding work they are producing,” Natasha said.
