An unconventional twist on Watford life!
Watford BID is extremely proud to present this series of sculptures which captures the spirit of the people and places of Watford. The sculptures have all been created by young Hertfordshire-based artist Marco Caruse, who sheds some light on his creative process:
“Each project begins as a sketch and is then fleshed out using clay, paint, and other materials and odd bits and pieces I have stumbled across. Each piece is placed in an environment I have built, which helps to create and breathe life into the miniature world these little characters live in. My aim is to take the mundane and sculpt it with an unconventional twist.”
The sculptures were also the creative inspiration for a range of colourful banners that have been seen up and down the High street. Ryan Coates, a designer at local marketing agency We Are Acuity, used Marco’s initial sketches to create stylised 2D versions of the sculptures which have helped to brighten up the centre of Watford, whatever the weather.
Following their appearance in the pop-up gallery and the open to the public event, the sculptures will be moved to a range of different locations around the town. You’ll then have the chance to find them all using an app which maps out a trail (linked by the matching colourful banners) and win a £300 Watford Gift card.
Download the app from 21st February. The competition to find the sculptures will run until May.
