It's THAT GUY!


Those of you who followed my photo blog in Toronto may remember how much I love the works of William McElcheran. Imagine my surprise when I turned the corner in Berlin and found THAT GUY sitting there!

McElcheran was a Canadian artist who spread these sculptures to different cities across the world, but I had no idea there were any here in Berlin. If you have THAT GUY in your city, I'd love to see him. Until then, you can see a few Toronto examples here and here.

  4. You are not the only one who loves and admires McElcheran works. I discovered him as a very small child in Guelph , where my father worked for some years. And Berlin is full of surprises !

  9. Thanks so much for introducing me to "That Guy". I did a Google search and saw photos of several of his sculptures and they are all priceless. I love the one called "The Conversation". How fun for you find one in Berlin.

  13. How nice that you didn't leave him behind in Canada! I know he hasn't made it to our small town. I'll have to make a check to see if he's anywhere around Seattle.
