Deadly Nightshade

London
“Deadly Nightshade” by Julian Wild, 2014
Bishopgate, City of London
London, September 2014

“A sculpture called Deadly Nightshade will soon be creeping up the wall of NatWest bank’s flagship branch in the Square Mile. The artist who created the five metre-high “psychedelic man-made weed” said he hopes it will encourage City workers to look up from the Bishopsgate pavement. Julian Wild sculpted the 150kg work in his Dalston studio. It is made from stainless steel with two stems made to look as thought they are climbing up the grey brickwork.”
