    ANA TZAREV'S LATEST WORK MARKS THE DAWN OF A 'GLOBAL SPRING'

    Ana TzarevIain Brunt is delighted to include a work by Ana Tzarev in his London Outdoor Sculpture exhibition. For further details please visit www.2012sculpture.co.uk
    We are grateful to Westminster City Council and transport for London for allowing us to display this wonderful sculpture and thank them for all their kind assistance in doing so.

    The Park Lane site launches the world's largest ever art installation – with a message of LOVE AND PEACE.

    Flower Power is back. We've been working with Ana to launch her most ambitious work to date – a series of connected sculptures which span the planet and carry a global message of love, peace and understanding.

    The 75-year-old artist is installing a collection of elaborate and brightly coloured fifteen-foot high flowers in a number of carefully selected venues in seven different countries around the world.

    According to Tzarev the sculptures will be placed in areas where millions of people will be able to see them as they go about their daily lives.

    After braving a freezing Sunday in central London we have now put the first flower on display on the grassy central reservation in Park Lane.

    The first flower blossomed earlier this month in Shenzhen in China and the next will bloom in Museo Nationale Palazzo di Venezia in Rome in the New Year.

    "I have had an idea to create a global sculpture from many years. It was my way of beginning a campaign through my art to start a global conversation," Tzarev told us.

    "I have created a limited number of these huge flowers. When the first one went on display in China we did it without a fanfare and watched the reaction… it caused quite a stir. I realised immediately that hundreds of people were attracted to the sculpture. They wanted to touch it and be seen with it. I believe we can get the world to talk together through these flowers.

    "My dream is for my flowers to act as beacons and rallying points across the planet – bringing people together on a global scale,"

    Make Christmas shopping fun and give the gift that will be used for a long time to come!
