In the past, public art was confined to commemorative pieces, murals, or architectural structures. These days, the umbrella of public art encompasses a variety of art forms including land art, graffiti, political art, architecture, and more. One contemporary artist, Florentijn Hofman, creates striking, bold, and joyful pieces that force the average passerby to stop and take notice.
Florentijn Hofman is a Dutch conceptual artist known for his impressively large sculptures often inspired by ordinary objects. In 2007, Hofman created a 26 meter tall rubber duck called “Spreading Joy Around the World.” The floating duck has been to 12 cities so far, and according to the artist, will bring happiness to people worldwide by reminding them of their childhood. Currently, the gigantic rubber duck is in Hong Kong, where it will remain until June 2013.

These days, the creation of an incredible work of art is no longer confined to the traditional canvas. Perhaps most demonstrative of that fact is Polish artist Adam Martinakis. Receiving his degree in Interior Architecture, Decorative Arts, and Industrial Design from the Technological Educational Institute of Athens, Martinakis convenes his technical prowess and love for futuristic aesthetics to create art which he describes as a “mixture of post-fantasy futurism and abstract symbolism”.
