Sculpture in the City

FullSizeRender-2Charity // Damien Hirst // Painted Bronze // 6858 x 2438 mm

When walking through the financial district in London it is natural to look up. The tall buildings such as the Shard and the Gherkin are modern architectural structures that tower above the historic buildings such as St. Pauls Cathedral. However, I urge you to look around next time you find yourself near these buildings as there is currently a sculpture exhibition spread through this part of the city. Titled Sculpture in the City, this display of works is part of London’s Cultural Strategy and features artists such as Damien Hirst, Bruce Beasley, Shan Hur and Ai Weiwei. There are twelve sculptures. How many have you found?
