Arturo Di Modica

yesterday a dear friend gave me a signed print of a similar photo of this bull by Arturo Di Mondica….

Arturo Di Modica (born January 26, 1941) is an Italian-American artist, born in VittoriaSicily, best known for his sculpture Charging Bull (also known as theWall Street Bull), which he installed without permission in front of the New York Stock Exchange in December 1989. The work cost US$360,000 of the artist’s own money. The piece is now on loan to the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation who have placed it in nearby Bowling Green park.

In 2004, Di Modica announced that the bull sculpture was for sale, on condition the buyer does not move it from its present location.

Di Modica now lives in New York City.
