Sculpting a Successful Future

23 February 2017 | Posted in: News

In August 2015, Dom de Carvalo became part of Octopus Ink collective and received a Renew space. Dom describes his work as sculpting odd creatures and creating weird jewellery. “I like to think of it as decorating people and places,” he said. He has been sculpting earrings, fantasy beasts and illustrating colouring books in his Renew space for almost two years.

Back in 2015 one of his goals was to run workshops teaching his unique sculptural style to others. Working with Renew graduate Andrew Dennis this goal has not only become a reality, but teaching has become Dom’s passion.

He is taking his career down a new path beginning a masters in primary school teaching at the University of Newcastle this year. Being involved with Renew is not just about occupying a space, but about giving and receiving among the creative networks that are generated from it.
