Schofield Sweeney sponsors David Hockney portrait

In case you missed it on Friday's One Show or Look North over the weekend, a brand new piece of art was unveiled on Saturday 8th July in Little Germany.

Marcus Levine was commissioned by the Little Germany Action Group to produce a large scale piece of art which would be installed on the side of a building just behind the Bradford office.

Marcus created a giant portrait of David Hockney, who celebrated his 80th birthday yesterday, made up of over 250,000 nails.

A VIP event was held at Kala Sangam before the guests were taken over to the unveiling by Andy Kershaw (Broadcaster & journalist).

The sculpture is 16ft high, 12ft wide, and weighs almost three-quarters of a ton. It is the world’s first coloured nail sculpture, and the hope is that the huge work will become a massive draw, bringing visitors to Little Germany.

The work is mounted on the external wall of a commercial building at the junction of Chapel Street and Peckover Street. 

We are delighted to have played a small part in helping this project come to fruition.
