Olympic diver and motivational speaker Tom Daley has been immortalised as a sculpture which is on display at Kevin McLoud’s Grand Designs exhibition.
Artist Nikki Taylor has created three awe-inspiring Olympic sculptures, featured in the central bar area of the show. The life-size sculptures feature a Rhythmic Gymnast as well as diver Tom Daley and former gold medallist sprinter Jason Gardener, MBE, both of whom posed for Nikki.
She has created her stainless steel mesh masterpieces in association with Art At the Edge, a public art project in Bath, as part of their Sculpture and Sport Celebration for 2012.
As a Guest Artist with Art at the Edge, Nikki’s sculptures will form part of a sculpture trail round Bath in summer 2012. Profits from the sale of all 3 pieces will be split between Paralympics GB and the Youth Sport Trust.
Grand Designs Live, the UK’s No.1, award-winning show for the home, returns to ExCeL London and is based on the hugely successful Channel 4 TV series, presented by design guru Kevin McCloud.
