Artist and sculptor, ZHANG HUAN, brings Shanghai ‘bling’ to TORONTO
International art star, ZHANG HUAN, has brought some stainless steel pizzazz to staid University Avenue, north of Adelaide Street. His $5 million sculpture, ‘Rising’, was unveiled recently, as part of Shangri-La Toronto‘s commitment to improving our city’s artscape. The sculpture, now behind a protective fence, will eventually sit in a large reflecting pool. Stainless steel birds flutter in and around several root-like arches. More birds will be added in the near future. The flashy design is raising eyebrows amongst downtown pedestrians and motorists.
