MIDABI, The Only Other

June 24, 2021 to June 23, 2022
Union Square Park, Manhattan

Created by the artist MIDABI, this steel sculptural text piece stands at 10 feet tall and 20 feet long, covered in a silver acrylic paint. His original literary works of esoteric origin are formed into visual art and produced for public display as a means of sharing information. Although agitation is a primary effect, and the approach can be cryptic, the work has an empathic core value that reaches a wide array of individuals.
