Danish recycling artist Thomas Dambo is known for his unbelievable outside sculptures that portray colossal, legendary trolls. For his most recent project, he was authorized by Tomorrowland Festival to change De Schorre park in Boom, Belgium into a charming woodland that seven of his “benevolent goliaths” have asserted as their home.
The new establishment of wooden models is a piece of the fifteenth commemoration of the electronic celebration as a blessing to the neighborhood network. Hand-worked from old racks from a market, beds, and branches from fallen trees, Dambo had the assistance of more than 200 individuals to gather the materials expected to make his new cast of animals. The characters extend from 7 to 18 meters in length and it took Dambo and his team of 15 individuals around 25 weeks to construct them. The different wooden figures can be discovered dabbed all through the timberland—some give off an impression of being occupied with doing tasks, while others are relaxing following a monotonous day’s worth of effort.
“Since I was a child I always loved to hear different fairytales and folklore stories, and dream myself away into magical worlds filled with dragons and trolls,” reveals Dambo. “As a teenager I started writing my own stories as a rapper, putting out records, touring and creating a universe, where I could tell these stories. In my latest project, I combined all of the above. Recycling, Rapping, Nature, and Sculptures.”
Dambo’s7 Trolls and The Magical Towerinstallation tells an enchanting fairytale, where seven giant trolls invite the “little people” of the world to their peaceful life in the forest, away from human destruction. “I hope to lure people away from concrete cities and computer screens, into the wild and reconnect them with the natural world,” he says. “I build all my enormous sculptures of recycled materials to show the potential in this precious material, which is often discarded and becomes a threat to the natural world.”
Recycling artist Thomas Dambo was recently commissioned by Tomorrowland Festival to install 7 of his friendly trolls in De Schorre park in Boom, Belgium.
The mind blowing open air sculptures are hand-worked from old racks, beds, and branches from fallen trees.
