We here at Cityzen Group are very proud to announce that the first piece of privately commissioned public art in Mississauga has arrived and stands at the base of our Absolute World towers.
"Buen Amigo" by renowned Chilean artist Francisco Gazitua was recently installed at the corner of Burnhamthorpe and Hurontario and brings another milestone to the Absolute project.
The piece is made up of three individual horses. Francisco says:
"With all of my sculptural work, I see to connect with the nature and [historical] character of its site."
As one of Chile's foremost artists with a career spanning more than forty years, we're delighted with our choice. Francisco is a member of the Belgian Royal Academy of Arts and a former Professor of Sculpture at Saint Martin's School of Art in London, as well as the former Head of the Sculpture Department at Universidad Finnis Terrae, Santiago, Chile.
We're very much looking forward to presenting "Buen Amigo" to the city of Mississauga this Friday.
We'll be on site with all the latest updates, but in the meantime, check out the below images.
