Artist Gerry Judah from India moves from Calcutta to London when he was 10 years old, but until that time the architecture of Calcutta’s temples had already affected his artistic world. The majority of his sculptures are public artworks that emerge from the ground up high in the sky. His latest work involves a 170-feet-tall (52 meters) collection of Porsche cars that have been placed in the shape of a wheel. The tall sculpture can be found at the Goodwood Estate in England and celebrates the 70 years since automobile company Porsche was born.
Gerry collaborated with engineering firm Diales in order to bring his sketches to life.
Every car that is included in the piece represents an iconic model of the Porsche brand.
The sculpture is being installed each year by Littlehampton Welding Limited on the site for as long as the festival lasts.
For a few years he worked in closed places, like the Royal Opera House and the English National Opera, but then he decided to look for public spaces to install his art.
He began to build a reputation for innovative design working in film, television, theatre, museums and public spaces. He created settings for the BBC, British Museum and musicians including Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson.
He also created sculptures for Ferrari, Porsche, Audi, Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz, Renault, Ford, Rolls-Royce and various other car brands.
Amongst a number of public museums and institutions, Judah was commissioned by the Imperial War Museum in London to create a large model of the selection ramp in Auschwitz-Birkenau for the Holocaust Exhibition opened by Queen Elizabeth II.
In the many years of Judah’s artistic existence, he has created many tremendously beautiful sculptures, which you can see in his website.
