Eduardo Paolozzi: 10 public sculptures around the UK

Published 15 February 2017

To mark the opening of the Whitechapel Gallery's major exhibition of Paolozzi's work, we've chosen 10 of his works in public spaces across the UK, from Cambridge to Glasgow.

As a sculptor, printmaker, collagist, textile designer and filmmaker, Eduardo Paolozzi transformed post-war art in Britain. He used the influence and aesthetics of mass media and combined them with unconventional, often industrial materials, to allow for a new and highly experimental approach to image making.

As Whitechapel Gallery in London holds a major retrospective of Paolozzi's work, we take a look at the artists's public works, which can be seen across the UK, from his birth place in Edinburgh, to Cambridge, Birmingham and Glasgow.
