Locally known in Chicago as “The Bean”, Cloud Gate is the striking sculpture by British artist Sir Anish Kapoor. It’s a stunning creation made all the more impressive by the city skyline behind. Taken during lockdown in 2020, the absence of people is very evident. Reflecting the photograph accentuates the reflection of the city on the bright polished surface of the bean creating a wonderful abstract image. Adding a rich golden colour makes the piece particularly warm and eye catching.
