The work of Florentjin Hofman, the Dutch artist, is known for integrating, intriguing and interactive installations into public spaces. He changes with great joy, between performative public art and the domain of the sculpture, and his art has a strong wish to amaze and making life a little more fun.
The fact that Florentijn Hofman is not an average gallery-exhibited artist should be obvious. The world is a huge playground and he can choose just about any spot or material in which to display his installations. The international art fair Pixel Show in Sao Paolo, is the starting
point of a project that recently became a giant monkey. The sculpture was developed with an inflatable PVC body covered with thousands of colorful â€œchinelasâ€, the most popular Brazilian sandals. Fat Monkey was built with the help of local students from Sao Paulo.
