About the artist

Damian Vick is a leading Melbourne based artist, working predominantly in sculpture and installation.

Emerging from a background in graphic design, his search for a more expressive and physical medium led him to focus his energy and passion for metal, engineering and craftsmanship in 2008.

The natural world, its patterns and underlying principles constitute a major theme in his work. Using metals, timber and other natural materials, Damian's aesthetic explores a landscape that ranges from bold and structured to lyrical and organic.
