Commissioned in 2008, Berlino’s organic, flowing masterpiece was one of the first major contemporary sculptures to be commissioned in Dubai and establishes ARTZU Projects as the leading art consultancy in the Gulf region.
‘The Address’ is one of Emaar’s most iconic skyscrapers and they wanted a contemporary sculpture to reflect the prestigious nature of this development. Made of cast aluminium, some 5m tall, the sculpture reveals its highly textured, natural form by encouraging the viewer to make a circular journey.
Born in Manchester, UK, in 1967, Berlino’s growing reputation as a sculptor and painter continues to evolve into ever more spectacular forms. He has recently completed several commissions for Dubai International Airport and is collected worldwide.
Recently published in EMAAR’s ‘Art Portfolio’ for Downtown Dubai Berlino’s work stands as a modern icon alongside other world class artists such as Fernando Botero and Jaume Plensa.
