Debuting in Southeast Asia, internationally renowned recycling artist, Thomas Dambo, brings his purposeful and evocative art to four secret locations in Sentosa’s Palawan Beach!

Venue: Palawan Beach, Sentosa
Dates: from Dec 2022 - end 2024
Admission: Free

Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC) has collaborated with internationally renowned recycling artist Thomas Dambo, known for his larger-than-life recycled art sculptures with dramatic storytelling and experiential elements, to launch mixed-media installations on Sentosa.

A Family Of Four Giant Sculptures

Explorers of Sentosa, a family of four giant sculptures are constructed mainly from discarded objects - reclaimed wood materials from wooden pallets and crates, accessorised with artwork upcycled from plastic waste, and constructed in collaboration with local volunteers.

The sculptures will be completed in December 2022 and will make Sentosa their home until the end of 2024. When completed, visitors will be able to explore and discover the sculptures using an interactive digital map that will take them around the Palawan area.

The Singapore-bound installations will join 97 other sculptures worldwide, such as Roskilde, Denmark and Pinecrest Gardens in Florida, United States of America.

Raising Awareness On Conservation

Bringing his art to Southeast Asia for the first time, Copenhagen-based Thomas taps into fairytales and folklore, to encourage people to go out into nature and explore, while raising awareness that trash has value.

Venue and Dates

The giants will be placed in the lesser-known areas of Palawan Beach for visitors to explore and to discover. They will be available from Dec 2022 until end 2024. 

Access to the installations is free throughout the year.
