On His High Horse: Super-Sized Stallion Sculpture

A horse is a horse, of course, and to pay an homage to this majestic creature, Nic Fiddian Green has made quite a grand gesture. The sculptor has made numerous horse sculptures inspired by his chestnut hunter George. The sculptures feature horse heads, made of bronze, that are the size of buildings. They are so large that they need to use a cherry picker to reach the top and clean them. Fiddian Green’s horse heads have become prominent London landmarks and he has said, “It is a great honour that Westminster city council have made this a permanent work of art for the city.”

Horse: Graphic Illustrator from UK

Gig posters are made every day by a number of independent artists. Displaying bands for shows and festivals, gig posters take on all sorts of creative concepts and looks. Over the years this art form has developed from its earliest renditions as hand-scribbled announcements, to psychedelic prints from the sixties promoting bands such as Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jefferson Airplane. Today, in a world that often copies that classic era, these designs really stand out.
