Do König Vassilakis: Angelo I
2000 | bronze, steel, glass, gilded ceramic | Lobby, 40 Bank Street (interior) | Art Map reference: 49
Angelo I was the second work by Do König Vassilakis to be purchased for Canary Wharf’s permanent collection. Like Tree, this sculpture graces the lobby of 40 Bank Street and reflects the artist’s interest in Greek mythology and culture, as well as in Surrealism.
Both pieces were cast in Italy where the artist has lived since 1989, using the foundries of Pietrasanta and Impruneta. A third sculpture by the artist, Sasso Cosmico, is found in Westferry Circus.
