Profile image of John AtkinEver since Henry Moore personally funded Atkin`s period of study at the RCA in London, 1982 to 1985, Atkin has continued to develop his studio practice, which focuses on the relationship between drawing and sculpture.

Sculpture description:
Massive Public Art Civic Pride Urban Focal and Center Point sculptures by John Atkin who is sought after for his Large Public Sculptures. Hard Bop was commissioned by Sculpturesite (San Francisco) on behalf of LARAMAR Inc.. for the Centre-Point of their Prestige Redevelopment of Fillmore Plaza, San Francisco. The sculpture formed part of a new Plaza Regeneration project for the Fillmore neighborhood and its position, at the front of the multi-purpose Award Winning building, is such that it acts as a Land mMrk at different times of the day and throughout the seasons.
Artist's comments:
Fillmore is historically regarded as the Harlem of the West Coast. Famous for it legendary Jazz heritage, it was important that the sculpture referenced notions of music and rhythm. To this end, the stainless steel forms of the artwork are inspired by the movement of a conductors baton, as it moves through the air: and the machine head granite keys reference the kinds of tuning devices common to a number of string musical instruments.

I must say it was for me the first time that I bought something on internet

You can imagine I was a little suspicious of doing this in the beginning Therefore I didn`t give my bank account on the telephone, Sorry therefore But I notice that buying this sculpture on the internet on your art park site, it gave me a good feeling now !!
Thanks again for the correct handling and the quick and nice service !!

Many greatings,
