Humour, sensation, maximum impact; internationally renowned artist Florentijn Hofman (Delfzijl, 1977) does not settle for less. His sculptures are large, very large, and are bound to make an impression. Take Rubber Duck (2007) for example: a gigantic 26-metre-high yellow rubber duck. It is an inflatable, based on the standard model that children from all four corners of the world are familiar with. The impressive rubber duck travels the world and pops up in many different cities: from Auckland and Paulo to Osaka. A very positive artistic statement that immediately connects people to their childhood. Another example is Fat Monkey (Paulo, 2010), a huge monkey tied together from 10,000 brightly coloured flip-flops, the Brazilian shoe par excellence. The monkey is lying stretched out in the park, where his 15-metre length makes passers-by stop dead in their tracks.
