Pure Art Studio Makes Lambanana For Open Awards

Posted on the 2nd March 2020

Our Pure Art Studio artists have created this SuperDuperLambBanana for the Open Awards office in Liverpool. The design is inspired by the SuperLambanana – a sculpture closely associated with the seaside city.

Commissioned To Construct

Nina Hinton from Open Awards is also a trustee of Pure Innovations. She saw the vibrant rhino sculpture made by Pure artists when she visited our head office, Rhino Court. She loved it so much that she wanted us to do something similar for Open Awards. Open Awards agreed and so commissioned the sculpture that we have now named the SuperDuperLambBanana.

What Is A SuperLambBanana?

The original Lambanana was designed by Japanese artist Taro Chiezo who had visited Liverpool. He described his creation as a vision of the future of 90s Liverpool. It was seen as a nod to Liverpool docks, where bananas and sheep were regular cargoes.

The quirky sculpture was then recreated in a range of designs, which were showcased across Liverpool. They named these SuperLambananas. The largest weighs nearly 8 tonnes!

Spectacular Sculptures By Pure Art Studio

Pure Art Studio artists are real specialists when it comes to creating sculptures. Previous works they have created include a lion, a giraffe and a crocodile. They recently made an African style tree for our drama group’s upcoming performance of the Lion King too.

Our thanks to Open Awards for commissioning the SuperDuperLambBanana sculpture for its office. We do hope everyone enjoys it as much as our craft group artists did making it!
