Man with Arms Open
West India Avenue, Canary Wharf
Giles Penny’s Man with Arms Open is a roughly hewn bronze
figure with his head thrown back and arms outstretched.
Penny came to the attention of the Canary Wharf Group
when this work, together with another of his bronzes,
Two Men on a Bench, were shown as part of the Millennium
exhibition, The Shape of the Century in 1999.
sculptures were then purchased and form part of the
permanent collection of works of art on the estate.
