Tucked away in the Nevada desert, Las Vegas - the Seven Magic Mountains are an art lover’s paradise.
Who created these Seven Magic Mountains
This masterpiece in the desert setting is the creation of Ugo Rondinone, the Swiss artist. He is a celebrated artist, known for his spray paintings and creative sculptures.
Story behind these Seven Magic Mountains
Ugo Rondinone cut huge boulders that were present in the nearby quarry. Then, he painted them with bright coats of neon. Later, he stacked these painted boulders into towers.
This artwork was inspired by cairns that are used as trail markers in many places around the world. These vibrant pieces of rock are a crowd puller; they exude happy vibes.
