The contemporary stainless steel sculpture Epic by Australian sculptor Lachlan Ross has been chosen for the Ladbrokes TV commercial starring Mark Wahlberg. The Australian born artist who resides mainly in the Byron Bay area was delighted to hear the news that one of his most recent sculptures was picked for the shoot. He had stated that whilst he “doesn’t care for the gambling industry”, the use of his sculpture for artistic purposes is “always welcome”. The news of the A-lister being in Australia during a national and global pandemic was posted by bandt, who learned that he was flown in on private charter specifically to film for the global campaign. Reportedly he was paid very handsomely to fly over 13 hours from the US where he also had to quarantine (privately) for 14 days.
For over 15 years Sculptura has offered art and sculpture rental for various events around Australia. Most notably the Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix, where a new sculpture has been the centrepiece of the gated areas and paddocks for several years. They have also been used for other events such as the Australian Open tennis tournament, Flower and Garden shows, and other TV including the long running Australian soap Neighbours.
Sculptura offer short term sculpture and art rental for events anywhere in Australia and in other specific countries around the world. Often for high profile international events and private events such as birthdays of high profile business men and women, entertainers, and cultural galas.
Long term rental and leases are also available for businesses who like to offset their expenses without the burden of holding and offloading assets. Renting or leasing sculpture comes with great benefits and can be considered for not just corporates and events, but for real estate agents who require property styling during the sales process.
