Roseberys are proud to offer work by the late Christo, who sadly passed away recently in May this year. (See more here »). Wrapped Walkways, Project for St. Stephen's Green Oark, Dublin 1983 was first created as a plan for the artist's attempt to do a wrapped walkway in the landmark park in the city center of Dublin. However, like many of their large-scale projects, the authorities refused the permit, so this work of art serves what was once a fleeting dream for the artist. Throughout their careers, Christo and partner Jeanne-Claude paid the entire cost of their extensive public artworks themselves. They earnt all of their money through the sale of Christo's preparatory studies, like the print pictured above and early works from the 50's and 60's. They did not accept grants or sponsorships of any kind.
