A Brent-based artist has created a giant MTV award statue which is taking pride of place in Wembley.
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.
He said: “I didn’t have a plan for this installation; I let myself go to create an authentic design. I’m inspired by the beauty of people and their energy - working with MTV has allowed me to celebrate that by combing my love for art with music. I hope the people of Brent embrace both worlds and celebrate the talent of our Borough.”
