GRIN AND BEAR IT

Wynn Magazine - - NEWS -

As part of Wynn Re­sorts’ con­tin­ued com­mit­ment to public art, an en­gag­ing new sculp­ture by cel­e­brated Span­ish con­tem­po­rary artist Okuda San Miguel has been in­stalled in Wynn Plaza at Wynn Las Ve­gas. Made from fiber­glass, alu­minum, and highly pig­mented syn­thetic enamel in the artist’s sig­na­ture pris­matic style, the 16-foot-high Smil­ing King Bear is a mul­ti­col­ored geo­met­ric bear with a spiked crown hold­ing a smil­ing ball. “Wynn has a re­mark­able art col­lec­tion and I am hon­ored to be a part of it,” says Okuda. “The ar­chi­tec­tural el­e­ments of the ho­tel and its lu­mi­nos­ity high­lights the shapes and colors of my Smil­ing King Bear. This jux­ta­po­si­tion of clas­si­cal and con­tem­po­rary is very of­ten part of my artis­tic con­cept, so the re­sort is a per­fect fit for the sculp­ture.”
