Q & A:

1. Who are your three best friends?

Danny: My brother from Brazil, Fiance (can’t forget her) and Pat one of our baristas.

2. How many coffees do you drink a day? Do you have them alone or with a friend?

Danny: I drink up to 5 but at the moment trying to cut back to 3…the guys here help me resist as I become a little edgy! I drink coffees with staff or with customers and sometimes some sneaky ones behind the counter.

3. If you could have a coffee with anyone in the world who would it be?

Danny: With Tony Abbott, not because he’s my friend but I have a few questions to ask him about how he’s leading our country!

4. Where’s the most memorable place you’ve ever had a coffee?

Danny: Sitting on a beautiful terrace in Marrakech, Morocco 4 years ago – I had an amazing turkish coffee whilst soaking up the view of the city. Turkish coffee is black and cooked on a stove top, and really really strong! It was a really memorable time.

5. Have you ever had a coffee with a dog or rabbit before?

Danny: No no, this is the first time in the cafe! I have had a coffee with my dog Roxy before, but he didn’t have one.

6. Who is the most interesting person who has come into the café and had a coffee?

Danny: We have quite a few local regulars that come in including Western Sydney Wanderers soccer player Nikolai Topor- Stanley. Chris Lilley also came in with a friend, he was quiet and was keeping a low profile as he was in the middle of filming his next series!

7. Why do coffee and friends go so well together?

Danny: Having a coffee together is the perfect conversation starter….Going out for coffee is much better than going out for drinks as the conversation is more serious and more interesting. You get more side tracked and distracted when going out for drinks.

Enjoying a good brunch with coffee is even better!

8. What makes a good coffee and why do people come to your café?

Danny: Nice, fresh and strong coffee we use Campos which is roasted here in Australia. We use the coffee beans between 10 and 20 days from roasting as that’s when it is freshest! We also go to the local markets for all our food and produce so everything is free range and organic as we want to provide the freshest for our customers.

RUSSELL DRYSDALE RECREATED BY GILLIE AND MARC

On the weekend, Gillie and Marc headed to the Riverina town of West Wyalong to uncover one of their latest projects…

WestWylong_roadInfluential Australian artist Russell Drysdale became an iconic figure after painting a series of landscapes of drought-ravaged 1940s New South Wales. Drysdales painting “West Wyalong” is  recreated in bronze by Gillie and Marc for the town as a 3D version.

“This interactive sculpture is placed on the street at the exact angle Drysdale painted from,” says Gillie. “We’ve recreated the streetscape, only it is more than double the original size. It’s a real landmark for West Wyalong.”

RUN FOR YOUR LIFE | FEDERATION SQUARE | 2014

Gillie and Marc’s exhibition in Federation Square is now installed!

Transport yourself to the African savanna by visiting a stunning trio of bronze rhinos in the Square.

Following their hugely popular ‘Paparazzi Dogs’ exhibition, public artists Gillie and Marc return to Fed Square with another collection of inspiring sculptures.

Titled ‘Run for your Life’, the work features three magnificent rhino sculptures that invite the public to be part of their run for freedom and life. This remarkable installation brings the call of the wild to the city and to the people of Melbourne who already have a strong moral and environmental concern. Nearly 700 rhinos have been killed in South Africa in 2013 making it the bloodiest year yet for rhino poaching. Gillie and Marc’s sculptures hope to raise public awareness of the plight of rhino species in the wild. Now critically endangered, rhinos desperately need the active involvement of everyone to save their lives. Gillie and Marc hope everyone who sets foot in Fed Square can feel a connection to the three sculptures that spell out the rhinos future.

Gillie and Marc’s Dogman and Rabbitgirl characters have taken charge of the trio – save them if you can or take a ride if you dare! But be careful to hold on tight and make sure someone holds you if you’re small! Rhinos love the warm water and their surfaces get hot so please be cautious when touching them.

The bronze rhinos are the latest public works to be commissioned by Fed Square’s Creative Program.

Come to Fed Square and ride along with the majestic creatures as they run for their life!

Where: The Square
When: 6 January – 14 March, daily, 24 hours
Price: Free
