Artist spreads love with new public installation in UK

Jun 30, 2020 10:04 IST

British artist, Andy Leek is celebrating the lifting of Covid-19 restrictions in the UK with a series of public artwork at London's King's Cross estate. His first installation called 'This Much' is inspired by the concept of social distancing that's become a way of life in the last three months. He hopes to turn the 'two-metre' distance rule into a new message about love and connection. In public spaces across King's Cross, messages of hope covered in UV paint or metallic glitter appear unknowingly, while an iconic 40-meter installation in laser-cut mirrored stainless steel is seen over Battle Bridge Place adjacent to King's Cross station. Andy Leek's residency will run until September.
