Carlisle Street – New Public Art

An application has been made for an exciting new addition to public art in Soho.

Base2Stay, the developers of the hotel currently under construction have made an application to put up a new art work depicting a fairy above a group of masks. The fairy represents Hypnos, Goddess of sleep, and the masks refer to the theatrical and cultural activities of Soho.

The work is by artist Hew Locke who is well known for his colourful and imaginative pieces elsewhere.

If the application is successful the piece has every opportunity of becoming a new landmark and a welcome addition to the area in the best traditions of public art.
