WATCH: Brett Murray's New Public Artwork


Celebrated Cape Town-based artist Brett Murray, whose long-awaited monograph was recently published, has unveiled his new bronze sculpture, 'Citizen', at Auto & General Park in Gauteng. At a towering 7.5 metres tall, the imposing bronze sculpture was commissioned by Spier Architectural Arts and created in collaboration with Bronze Age Art Foundry and structural engineering firm Grandi Manufacturing.

Filmmaker Gavin Elder recorded the process, along with an interview with the artist.
