Craig Alun Smith’s LuvOwl project to debut this April in Milan at Piazza del Duomo, during Milano Salone.
The concept of LuvOwl is simple, birds eat the Owl, and then bright colours “appear” around the city – true public art! LuvOwl is produced by moulding seed, suet and food colour into the form of an owl commonly but ineffectively used as a bird deterrent. The Owls are based on the RGB colour model so in theory seeds from different coloured owls combined in the birds’ gizzards should produce a broad array of colours. Craig will be in Milan next week (14th-16th March) testing the project and scouting appropriate perches for the LuvOwls.
