Public Art

At O’Sullivan Conservation, our team is passionate about conserving and restoring public art that adorns our cities and public spaces. We understand the profound impact these artworks can have on the communities that interact with them daily. Whether it’s a historic bronze statue, an iconic sculpture, a vibrant mosaic, or a painted mural, we bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to every project.

Our approach combines up-to-date conservation techniques with a deep respect for the artistic intent behind these pieces. Through preservation methods and maintenance treatments, we ensure they are protected from the effects of time and environmental elements. We undertake regular condition assessments, maintenance cleaning, repairs to damages, graffiti removal, corrosion removal, and application of protective coatings. O’Sullivan Conservation is committed to safeguarding our public artworks, to preserve the beauty, stories, and inspiration they convey for our communities and future generations.
