Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Art at More London

This is the latest outdoor exhibition outside City hall on the banks of the Thames near Tower Bridge. I had not heard of the artist and although I googled the information on the sculptures I was none the wiser. Maybe someone out there can shed further light on these pieces of art.

The information reads: Hongfei Xu
Guangzhou  - China

  1. These are great to watch, I like all the bodies with volumes, must be a relief for fat people to see them sculptured in art.The one in the chair I like the most.

  2. I couldn't possibly pick a favorite. They are so interesting, especially knowing the artist is
    Chinese. Do you think they will still be there in September?

    1. Not sure. Exhibitions change frequently in this area. Have you got your trip sorted now?

  3. It's amazing to catch people in motion, but the artist did a fantastic job of it. I love them all, but I also like the one in the chair the best. Thanks for finding and sharing these with me! :-)

    1. Yes Marcia. You are staying just a few minutes walk from Tower Bridge. You will be able to stroll across the Bridge when it is all lit up at night and walk along the South bank of the river and see these sculptures!

  13. Love your photos of these amazing sculptures. They are unusual, especially since the artist is Chinese where few over weight people live.

    Thank you for your humorous comment on my Vinegar Museum photos.

  20. Sculptures with a difference. Some almost look like cartoons. I smiled at the thin guy with the fat woman.

  21. Incredible display!! Boom, Bobbi and Gary.

  22. Quite an interesting display --not like any I have ever seen before. I wonder if the artist is making fun of overweight people ---or is he saying that it's okay to be obese????? I'd love to know... Overweight people should like this series though since they seldom get featured on anything.... My favorite is the person on the bicycle..... That must be delight for them!

    Hugs,
    Betsy
