Begging your indulgence in putting a pause on the very colorful Venice posts to give way to a post about colorful, fanciful sculptures from Taiwanese artist Hung Yi. I haven't heard of this artist before, but I'm glad I got to know of him through his work. It all started from a selfie on facebook. My FB friend wrote on the selfie, "A Good Day at Civic Center". I was fascinated by the background art and knowing the Civic Center area, I knew the art must be temporary installations. So I googled temporary art installations at Civic Center and I got the information that I needed. Please read this for a little background.
Let's look at the sculptures together:
No matter how thorough I thought I was, I found out when I got home that I was missing information on a few sculptures.
Like the elephants.
Or the frog.
However, at the end (farthest from city hall) of the installation, there was a group of sculptures called Animal Circus.
There you have it a free, outdoor art exhibit. Every surface of the sculpture is filled with imagery and done in vivid bold colors. Reminds me so much of a Peter Max art work. Very happy and blessed to have access to wonderful works of art for free. Made my weekend.
