"I like cancelled plans. And empty bookstores. I like rainy days and thunderstorms. And quiet coffee shops. I like messy beds and over-worn pajamas. Most of all, I like the small joys that a simple life brings."
Hungarian artist Ervin Herve-Loranth has unleashed a giant on the city of Budapest. Entitled Feltépve (“Ripped up” or “Pop Up”), the cranky colossus is made of polystyrene and appears to be emerging from a secret subterranean lair beneath Szechenyi Square. He was created for Art Market Budapest, a 4-day-long international contemporary art fair.
