Ana Tzarev is delighted and proud to announce the launch of her most ambitious work to date – a series of connected sculptures, which span the planet and carry a global message of love, peace and understanding.
Ana is installing a collection of elaborate and brightly coloured fifteen-foot high flowers in several countries around the world. “I have had an idea to create a global sculpture for many years. It was my way of beginning a campaign through my art to start a global conversation” says Ana Tzarev.
The sculptures will be placed in areas where millions of people will be able to see them as they go about their daily lives. The first flower in Europe appeared on the grassy central reservation of London's Park Lane on December 9 after the earlier success of Shenzhen in China.
“When the first flower went on display in China, I realised immediately that hundreds of people were attracted to the sculpture. They wanted to touch it and be seen with it”.
Ana says the idea is to rally a worldwide feeling of Love and Peace. “I want these striking and vibrant sculptures to attract people and encourage them to tell their stories and share their experiences. My dream is for my flowers to act as beacons and rallying points across the planet – bringing people together on a global scale.”
Ana has drawn upon her 25 years as a full-time artist and a lifetime of experience and travel to create the work. This year – when the blooms will have spread to a number of other cities – Tzarev is launching a special app, which can be downloaded to the iPad, Android device or smart phone. The app allows people all over the planet to upload photos, leave messages and experience Love & Peace around the world. People can also communicate through a series of social media sites including Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest.
We are speaking to a number of other countries as this global art movement gathers momentum.
