The Steel City of Sheffield has been Steve Mehdi's home for a number of years. The region's history and the gritty nature of its people has added an emotional bond that gives a raw strength and energy to his work.
He is currently engaged on a number of public and private commissions including a major project called The Yorkshire Man of Steel. Inspired by his former experiences in Sheffield's steel industry the Yorkshire Man of Steel will be a 32 metre landmark sculpture and visitor centre on the edge of Rotherham in South Yorkshire. This impressive figure will celebrate the region's heritage and the communities that supported them. It will also mark the advances in the new technology sector. A number of local and international companies are supporting the project. To find out more go to: www.yorkshiremanofsteel.com.
