Giant 'Octopus' Situated by St. Katherine's Dock

About

If you find yourself wondering along the Thames around St Catherines Dock and stumble across a large sea monster, you are not dreaming! Hay Hill Gallery has the pleasure to present 6 Thomas Moore Square, situated by St Katherine's Dock, with an exquisite mosaic sculpture by international artist Marialuisa Tadei. The octopus is the first instalment of art works to be placed on one of Land Securities prestigious London estates. ''Octopus'', featured in Art London this year, has received high recognition by Art critics. Created in 2011, the Octopus spans over 5 metres by 5 metres and reaches 156 cm in height. It is made entirely of hand-cut mosaic glass on a concrete and stainless steel frame, as is Tadei's signature style. Marialuisa Tadei has an impressive career and is fast becoming a heavy weight in the art world, having already participated in the Venice Biennale this year and in also in 2009. Tadei has also exhibited along side artists such as Anish Kapoor, Antony Gormley and Marc Quinn to name a few.
