'Wind Sculpture (SG) I' by Yinka Shonibare MBE

Doris C. Freedman Plaza, Central Park, New York
Public Art Fund presents 'Wind Sculpture (SG) I', a new sculpture by Yinka Shonibare MBE commissioned for Doris C. Freedman Plaza at the southeast entrance to Central Park. This is the first work in a second generation of his celebrated Wind Sculpture series.

Created from fiberglass, the 23-foot-tall sculpture will rise above the plaza, reminiscent of the untethered sail of a ship. Its unique, hand-painted pattern in turquoise, red, and orange - colours that the artist associates with his childhood on the beaches of Lagos - is inspired by Dutch wax batik print, which Shonibare has called the "perfect metaphor for multilayered identities".
