Look at the Bob Marley statue that’s set to be unveiled in Liverpool by the same sculptor that brought us the Beatles

23/08/2021

Positive Vibration Festival are delighted to announce that they have commissioned a 7ft tall statue of cultural icon, Bob Marley.

The artwork is to be created by sculptor Andy Edwards who is well known in Liverpool for his brilliant Beatles statue on Liverpool’s Waterfront.

After a turbulent and difficult year for everyone, divisiveness has come to define a lot of public discourse. It was for this reason that Positive Vibration Festival came up with the idea for a Bob Marley statue. The universality of Bob Marley’s message of love, unity and hope is much needed, and the festival wanted to pay tribute to that message and hopefully inspire people.

After seeing the impact that Andy Edwards’ Beatles and Mohammed Ali statues had made, the festival approached Andy through Castle Fine Arts Foundry and have worked collaboratively to make the idea a reality.

The Bob Marley statue will undoubtedly become one of Liverpool’s most iconic public artworks and will mirror the success of other artworks around the city such as The Beatles statue, the Superlambanana and the Liver Wings.
