Robert Worley ARBS was the winner of the FIRST@108 Public Art Award in 2009, a new annual award by the Royal British Society of Sculptors to provide an opportunity for artists new to public art to create a large-scale sculpture commission.
The Award was sponsored by Canary Wharf Group, who subsequently purchased Worley’s sculpture Avatar for its permanent collection. Avatar portrays a hawk-like beast with a human form embedded in its back.
