An internationally renowned gargantuan land sculptor dropped into the studio with Ross and John to showcase his incredible artistic feats.

Someone who fits into the category of being more well known overseas than he is here in his hometown of Melbourne, Andrew Rogers has made 39 humongous sculptures on seven continents.

One piece of his artwork was made with the assistance of 1000 soldiers from the Chinese army, and depicted a ‘petroglyph’, an ancient rock drawing, found in the mountains of China.

Andrew's sculptures in China were made using walls which stretched kilometres and were visible via satellite in space.

"They're always interesting people experiences when you have 1000 people on the ground working with you, that's something special,” Andrew Rogers told Ross and John.

Andrew said his sculptures are all designed to integrate back into the ground, and no foreign matter is brought onto the sites.
