An artist has been transforming everyday objects into whimsical sculptures in Fort Washington Park along the Hudson south of West 176th Street. Our tipster, Lucas Bernard, sent the images and spoke to the artist, who is apparently tall, skinny and bearded.
“They are new; I met the artist as he was constructing some of them,” Lucas wrote. “Like the stone objects down by the river, these constructions are also frequently destroyed and/or ‘cleaned’ up. The artist told me that although these (what I photographed) are new, he has been making constructions for a while and would welcome the publicity.”
A sign at the site says “Freedom Visuals”.
Yes, this is somewhat out of our coverage area, but it fits with our previous coverage of artist Uliks Gryka, who has been building stone sculptures along the Hudson.
