/ / Artist Bios 2020

My name is Arvin Abbassian and I am a trained architect, designer, and artist raised on the Gold Coast, Australia.
I hope to add & give back some of these experiences in the form of teaching & contribute to the body of knowledge about sustainability and reconsidering our impact on the ocean.

2020 SWELL ARTWORK – Coral Rehab, Arvin Abbassian

One of our fasted depleting ecosystems are the coral reefs. Mass bleaching is now striking on an average of 6 years; unprecedented and far too frequent for our ecosystems to recover. Hydroid is a design proposal which moderates ocean temperatures and creates structure for sea life to rehabilitate.

Come and see for yourself at SWELL Sculpture Festival, Pacific Parade, Currumbin 11-20 September.
