Inspiration: Giant Public Art

Today’s inspiration comes from Turkish artist Mehmet Ali Uysal. This giant wooden clip installation appeared in the Chaudfontaine park in Belgium, as part of a contemporary art exhibition and is a great demonstration of how everyday items can make wonderful subjects for artworks, big or small.

There’s something impressive about art on a large scale. Not only do we admire the artists who take on such ambitious projects, we also love they way these projects have the power to transform even the most mundane and everyday surroundings. The scale of such big artworks makes us think differently about the towns, cites and landscapes we inhabit.
