Antony Gormley is most well-known for his sculpture ‘The Angel of the North’, which stands in Gateshead in the north of England. Other public works include ‘Another Place’ on Crosby Beach near Liverpool and ‘Event Horizon’, which has been shown at many sites across the world: London, Madison Square in New York, Sao Paulo in Brazil and Hong Kong. Gormley was born in London in 1950. His artistic studies began at Trinity College Cambridge in the late 1960s, where he studied History of Art. Before continuing with his creative pursuits, he travelled through Asia for three years to immerse himself in Buddhism.
