A sculpture by internally renowned artist Jedd Novatt is to go on display in a Mayfair park on Monday as part of Westminster Council's City of Sculpture festival.

Art-lovers will be able to enjoy the four metre high bronze sculpture in Westminster's Brown Harts Gardens.

Entitled "Chaos Mundaka", the work is part of the 'Chaos' series of sculptures, which Mr Novatt creates in his studio at a foundry near Bilbao, Spain.

Mr Novatt said: "The Installation of Chaos Mundaka in Brown Harts Gardens will be a dynamic juxtaposition of contemporary sculpture and classical architecture in an important central London context."

The sculpture is part of Westminster Council's City of Sculpture festival which will see the heart of the capital's outdoors transformed by more than 60 pieces of world class art which people can view for free.

Cllr Robert Davis, Westminster City Council Deputy Leader, said: "This London event will further enhance Westminster's reputation as the home of some of the world's most famous art, which can be viewed not only in our vast array of galleries but also on our streets."

"As the world prepares to focus its gaze on its sporting heroes I hope our City of Sculpture event will encourage art lovers from both home and abroad to enjoy the many cultural offerings available to them in the city. In the months ahead I hope that the sculptures which will appear across the city will surprise, amuse and excite everyone who sees them."

Nigel Hughes, Planning and Environment Director at Grosvenor which is sponsoring City of Sculpture festival, said: "We are delighted to be working in partnership with Westminster City Council to support this exciting programme and hope that the launch of the first sculpture will help promote other opportunities in Mayfair and Belgravia for the display of works by such world class cultural artists."
