We love hearing people tell us their stories about Bimbo and want to hear more stories about Chris, Carol or the good old days. Throughout its 35-year history, Bimbo has sold some really amazing pieces of artwork designed and constructed by local South Australian and Australian artists.
Peter Day sent us in this awesome photo of a wire sculpture he bought from Bimbo in the late 80’s. He saw this piece when he was walking home one night from the Ex and decided he just had to have it. It now sits proudly in the entrance to his home and is one of the first things people see when they walk in. This wire artist had work featured in Bimbo throughout the 80’s but we can’t remember his name. If you have any idea, seriously, drop us a line.
Tony Kellie bought this original wooden stool by local Adelaide artist Robin Turner. Robin created amazing sculptures
from recycled native timbers. This one of a kind piece has become even better with age and is still one of Tony’s favourite purchases from Bimbo today. With the passing of Robin Turner a few years ago these pieces are now a tribute to an amazing Adelaide artist, who will be sorely missed by the art community and his fans.
In keeping with tradition, Bimbo still stocks works by a range of amazingly talented Adelaide and Australian artists. New to the store, this stunning mixed media piece, by a local Adelaide Artist, is constructed from exquisite antique textiles. With a rich backstory, this piece is compiled of stunning textiles that the artist collected from the Silk Road during her travels in India and China.
