This Autumn, Seven Dials invites you to discover the latest in their local initiative, The Artist’s Artist Project. Displayed on an old billboard on Shorts Gardens which sees an ongoing series of free public artworks exhibited in the unique West End destination. Unveiled this week, the latest work by Lee Kay-Barry is titled ‘Count to Four’ and supports World Mental Health Day 2019.
Kay-Barry’s installation is the third piece displayed on the billboard, in the ongoing series and endeavours to convey a powerful and topical message that raises awareness for the conversation around mental health.
Initially launched in January 2019 with British artist Iona Rowland’s work, The Evolution of Agatha Christie, the exclusive public work of art was commissioned by Seven Dials to honour 90 years since the publication of Agatha Christie’s iconic novel The Seven Dials Mystery. Iona nominated fellow London-based artist, Rene Gonzalez, the second artist, who later nominated Lee Kay-Barry to be the final artist in the 2019 public art installation series.
