Andrew Young — May 29, 2015

This week, the National Portrait Gallery in London unveiled a new statue of creator of the Web  Sir Tim Berners-Lee. The sculpture was created by Sean Henry.

“Henry said: ‘Tim is a very dynamic person to sculpt as he has a very active mind and is active physically, too.’

‘Above all, what came through was his strong sense of purpose … it felt important to try to capture this in the work.’

The sculpture was commissioned by the gallery to celebrate Berners-Lee’s 60th birthday, was sponsored by JP Morgan and is the NPG’s first commissioned portrait sculpture for seven years.”
