Barcelona-born sculptor Jaume Plensa is one of the world’s most celebrated public artists. Plensa’s work is best known for the monumental figurative sculptures that are seen across the globe. The Spanish artist was commissioned by Calgary’s The Bow plaza to create two artistic legacies for the space. Plensa’s Wonderland, a 12-metre tall bent-wire portrait of a young girl will be the key feature of the main plaza area, with a second piece, a bronze sculpture titled Alberta’s Dream, will be unveiled later this year.
