Paul Sloan

Nationally and internationally recognised South Australian artist Paul Sloan is the creator of Pigeon, which stands over two metres tall and was crafted out of stainless steel by local manufacturer Iguana Creative. Sloan’s vision was to raise the status of the humble pigeon from an overlooked, ubiquitous creature to the realm of awe and wonder.

“I see pigeons as proud flaneurs, promenading through our leisure and retail precincts. They are the quiet witnesses of our day-to-day activities in the city, our observers from day through to night,” said Paul.

The Pigeon builds on the City’s of existing legacy of public art and adds to Adelaide’s reputation as a place of culture, creativity and innovation.

Located near the Nespresso Boutique, this striking sculpture has attracted many admirers, and enhances the reputation of the precinct as destination for bold, colourful and immersive art experiences.
