Atkin has forged together a team expert in the delivery of public artworks, whatever the medium, globally.
Atkin's output can been viewed worldwide, including England, Ireland, North America, U.A.E, Australia, China. He has produced landmark artworks for major events such as the 2008 Beijing olympics as well as signature sculptures for major international regeneration projects.
Increasingly, he collaborates with developers and architects on public art projects, tailored to specific commission briefs from private or public organisations, industry or local and national government bodies. As a public artist his role is in providing solutions for particular spaces, creating places with a special significance that the public can enjoy. This comes to fruition after comprehensive research (including community consultation) and by making site specific artworks that enhance the environment, through the use of relevant imagery and materials, mapped to a vision of the locale by way of its history and heritage.
