This piece is modelled off Gillie and Marc’s much-loved public artwork, It Takes Two, in Sydney’s trendy inner-city suburb, Paddington. Because the artists met while travelling, adventure and exploring has always been a huge part of their work. They have a soft spot for vespas because it’s an excuse to hold on tightly to one another.

Gillie and Marc have been called “the most successful and prolific creators of public art in New York’s History” by the New York Times. Creating some of the world’s most innovative public sculptures, Gillie and Marc are re-defining what public art should be, spreading messages of love, equality, and conservation around the world. The artists are best known for their beloved characters, Rabbitgirl and Dogman, who tell the autobiographical tale of two opposites coming together to become best friends and soul mates. As unlikely animal kingdom companions, the Rabbit and the Dog stand for diversity and acceptance through love. Gillie and Marc believe art is a powerful platform for change. Their art is multi-disciplinary, paying homage to the importance of togetherness, as well as the magnificence of the natural world, and the necessity of preserving it – for we are it, and it is us.
