London – Pimlico – Girl on Roller Skates

I couldn’t see anything near to this sculpture as to who designed it, but it’s located where Moreton Street meets with Vauxhall Bridge Road in Pimlico.

It’s quite a fun and powerful piece and, fortunately, there’s information on-line about it otherwise I would have been none the wiser. It was designed by the London artist André Wallace and was installed here in 2010 as part of the art development requirement when constructing a nearby housing project. It got delayed when the 2008 financial crash hit the housing market and then someone built a lamp-post on the site, so it all took a little time to fix.
