Out of this world | Brendan Murphy


A product of a year-long collaboration between artist Brendan Murphy and The ARX, a 19-foot sculpture of a spaceman has landed in Knightsbridge.  



WHEN IT COMES to life, Brendan Murphy goes big.


He liked basketball – so he became a professional basketball player. He was also pretty good with numbers, so he then took up trading on Wall Street.   And finally he always knew he had a creative streak – and so duly became one of the world’s most exciting contemporary artists with a line-up of patrons including Serena Williams, Novak Djokovic, Larry Ellison, and Warren Buffet.   Murphy is just that kind of guy. He describes himself as being “in the business of wow.” And there’s no doubt his creations have galactic impact.   This December, one of London’s most exclusive contemporary art galleries, The ARX, has officially unveiled Murphy’s latest masterpiece – a monumental installation entitled Dreams Matter.
