" 'The Address' in Downtown Dubai is one of our clients most iconic skyscrapers. We wanted a contemporary sculpture to reflect the prestigious nature of this development. We contacted art consultants worldwide who would be capable of taking on such a large specialised project. Through this process we found that ARTZU Projects had the most comprehensive image library of different sculpture from artists all over the world. This helped us select a few images to convey our ideas of the type of sculpture that we anticipated for the forecourt for our 63 storey five star hotel. We awarded the commission to ARTZU Projects as they had the clearest understanding of our brief and presented the most exciting ideas. ARTZU Projects expertly led us through the commissioning process from their initial presentation to the final installation. The work was created by the British artist Berlino and ARTZU was involved in all aspects of the project in both the UK and Dubai. The Concha sculpture is a very successful interpretation of our requirements and has made a significant contribution to the imposing nature of the building." Shaun Killa, Ex-Director, Atkins, Head of Architecture Berlino's organic, flowing masterpiece was one of the first major contemporary sculptures to be commissioned in Dubai and established ARTZU Projects as the leading art consultancy in the Gulf region. 'The Address' is one of Emaar's most iconic skyscrapers and they wanted a contemporary sculpture to reflect the prestigious nature of this development. Made of cast aluminium, some 5m tall, the sculpture reveals its highly textured, natural form by encouraging the viewer to make a circular journey.

ARTZU Projects were awarded an art consultancy contract to supply sculpture for a spectacular, luxury brand shopping mall in Almaty - former capital of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Central Asia. To complement the theme of “Dostyk” sculptor Anna Gillespie develop the concept of two joined figures, one male, one female formed in leaves. This naturalistic sculpture, cast in bronze, was spectacular whilst also offering the elegant charm the brief required.

World renowned Christie's Hospital, a world leader in the treatment on cancer, invited Artzu to present an art strategy to board members. We were asked to make recommendations on how we can transform the hospital environment, engaging with staff members and others working externally in the healthcare sector. We concluded artwork would significantly enhance the health and welfare of patients, workers and visitors alike. There was a subsequent fund raising exhibition host by BBC's Terry Christian featuring the auctioned photography of Harry Goodwin.

ART SPARKS CREATIVITY IN THE WORKPLACE Art sends a powerful message to your clients about your innovative brand and corporate ethos that distinguishes you from your competitors. TLT Solicitors are an exciting example of how contemporary art can revitalise a conventional work space into something inspirational. ARTZU worked alongside key partners at TLT to transform their Manchester office into an extraordinary workplace through an exceptional collection of contemporary art. This original and avant-garde approach requires careful consideration: the right collection of artwork can define your business and its brand ethos, creating a space which takes it to another level of sophistication. Key to the selection process is an understanding of the culture and values of your business; the artwork must reflect the 'spirit' of your company through a strong visual message. Only by working closely alongside you and your colleagues to define these fundamental ideals can they be extended into the design concept through artwork. In the final stages of a project the most suitable artworks are presented to you through visual renderings of the interiors. This process allows you to fully understand the impact and placement of artworks before you make a final decision on suitable pieces to buy and commission.
