Giraffeman is 10 !

The Giraffeman was born in 2006 as an order to the artist by Arte and the City of Strasbourg, in partnership with the CEAAC. 

Installed in front of the cultural channel, the sculpture stand here like a figurehead and echoes Arte’s vocation: awake curiosity and stimulate the imagination through the artistic creation. As an artwork in public places, Stephan Balkenhol sculpture symbolizes a common commitment to contemporary creation.

Witnessing the daily human ballet for a decade, Giraffeman has found its place among artworks in Strasbourg public spaces and mental landscapes of many habitants and tourists. 

As an opportunity to celebrate the generous and prolific work, Arte will present an exhibition of original sculptures of Stephan Balkenhol.
