Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada – Wish

Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada is known for his large scale public works of art and his new piece, recently unveiled in Belfast a few weeks ago is no exception. It is nothing short of monumental. Covering 11 acres, it is so large that it can only be seen from the air or the highest points in Belfast.

Many many years in the making, it shows the face of an unnamed Belfast girl. In the end, a number of volunteers moved over 8 million pounds natural materials over about a month to produce the portrait.
