Hunto is one of a group of artists commissioned by MTV to create giant sculptures ahead of the 2017 MTV EMAs on November 12.

The artist, who doesn’t show his face, wants his eight foot pop-up Picasso-inspired statue to gain the attention.

I hope the people of Brent embrace both worlds and celebrate the talent of our Borough.”
