Giant Urban Sculptures of Florentijn Hofman28. Oct2012

Humour, sensation, maximum impact; internationally renowned artist Florentijn Hofman (Born 16.04.77 at Delfzijl, Netherland) does not settle for less. His sculptures are large, very large, and are bound to make an impression.

An encounter with one of Hofman’s extraordinary sculptures invites us to stand still for a moment and to look; to really look and to take a picture if you like.

Hofman: ‘My sculptures cause an uproar, astonishment and put a smile on your face. They give people a break from their daily routines. Passers-by stop in front of them, get off their bicycle and enter into conversation with other spectators. People are making contact with each other again. That is the effect of my sculptures in the public domain.’
