We’ve been working with local artist Lendon Scantlebury for a few years now and if you are living in the Oxfordshire area you may well have visited one of his sculpture shows, which take place in a variety of locations around the county. Lendon didn’t like art at school, but luckily his talent was recognised, nurtured and developed by a mentor, and now he gives back by doing the same for other young people.
Each year he gives a young apprentice the opportunity to not only learn from him but also create a one off piece of art to be displayed (and hopefully sold) at a large public show.
This is the film of his 2016 apprentice, Tom Koster. It’s gives a short glimpse into a world which saw Tom’s creativity unfurling, and we were really privileged to capture the moment when his sculpture was unveiled to the public.
