Artist Sam Shendi's work to be unveiled by Royal British Society of Sculptors
11:00am Wednesday 2nd October 2013 in News
An artist from Cowling has completed a sculpture that will soon go on display at the Royal British Society of Sculptors.
Sam Shendi won the British Royal Society of Sculptors annual First@108 award for his colourful sculpture 'Evolution' back in March.
He was given £10,000 to transform his model into a large scale sculpture that will be unveiled at the London site on October 30, alongside an exhibition of his work.
The Egyptian born artist created a steel sculpture that shows the transmission of energy through a person’s lifetime, and uses basic shapes to show different stages.
He hopes that the sculpture could prove to be his big break in the arts world. Describing his piece, Mr Shendi said: “It is presented by seven individual sculptures, each showing a minimalistic shape of the human figure in seven different stages of life.
"These stages are infancy, childhood, teenager, adulthood, mature, elderly and death. Having these pieces together in one concept makes the viewer realise how short these stages are. How easily we can take it for granted.”
