Internationally-acclaimed Dutch visual artist Florentijn Hofman is the creator of mammoth sculptures, many originating from everyday objects and placed in environments crucial to making a statement and astonishing the viewer.
Hofman speaks about his inventive, bold, cartoonish works and how they alienate, unsettle or cause an uproar, including Rubber Duck (at Darling Harbour throughout the Festival), Fat Monkey (2010), comprising 10,000 bright-coloured flip-flops, and Steelman (2011), an 11-metre high bear with a pillow under its arm.
