Artichoke works with artists to create extraordinary and ambitious public art in cities, the countryside and on coastlines around the UK.

We have created some of the most celebrated outdoor art in recent times, including the Lumiere light festivals, The Sultan’s Elephant, Antony Gormley’s One & Other Fourth Plinth commission and Temple.
