Art Ferdi B Dick 24 01

With his most recent piece at Zhan Jiang Garden City in China, South African artist Ferdi B Dick has once again elevated his art to a monumental scale. The enormous stainless steel sculpture “Embrace the Amazing Whale” shows a massive whale emerging from the water.

The artist used subtle references from inflatable tubes to create an impressive design that gives his 8-meter-high sculpture a buoyant quality. This new piece features all of Ferdi’s signature rounded patterns and graceful contours. The sculpture’s base features a cascading spray of water that not only adds movement but also amplifies its powerful presence as it rises from the earth.

“The sculpture becomes the focal point of this important urban development, rising with vigour and strength above the tide of the surrounding waters of the panoramic seafront.”
