Glass artist Alexander Beleschenko has created two works for London’s Canary Wharf public art programme. The installations will be located at the Citigroup buildings. The first, which has just been completed, lies at basement level, linking the Jubilee Line Underground station with Canada Place shopping mall and draws inspiration from the three natural elements: air, water and earth. Panels of glass run along the walls of the corridor, and changing light levels will enhance the painted flecks of blue as well as the swathes of blue and green. Beleschenko’s second installation will be unveiled in February.
