The Cheapside Sculptures Created by David Annanad and poetry by Rhian Edwards/students of Brynteg Comp where unveiled recently.The sculptures along with the hard landscaping on site have completely transformed this area of Bridgend,well done all !
In May 2012 John Tripp Award Winner, Rhian Edwards and evolutionary sculptor, David Annand worked with gifted and talented pupils at Brynteg Lower School, Bridgend as part of public consultation workshops in preparation for a new town centre sculpture.
Many of David’s sculptures create an interactive space which is a combination of street furniture and art. The majority of his sculptures have poems commissioned and engraved on them and the poem helps engage the public and encourages them to take time with the piece.
Involvement of local school pupils helped to create a narrative for the piece, which used figures, steel structures and poetry to help consolidate the whole composition.
