The latest work by the people behind Cardiff’s Ball in the Wall is every bit as awesome

A Cardiff company that has created some iconic works of art, including the Ball in the Wall and an enormous dragon on the banks of a Welsh castle, has pulled it out of the bag yet again.

The display sprung up at a busy central London railway station on Monday morning with Stay Puft Marshmallow Man on the concourse at Waterloo Station in London during the early-morning rush hour.

Standing at 2.9m in height with a circumference of 8.5m, commuters were able to come face to face with the mammoth menace and take selfies while going about their travels.

Wild Creations have been the creators of some of the most talked-about art installations in Wales and the UK since the huge success of their Ball in the Wall during the Rugby World Cup 2015, among other projects.

The mythical monster was created by Cardiff firm Wild Creations and was part of Cadw’s Historic Adventures campaign

The giant rugby ball, based on the official tournament ball produced by Gilbert, appeared to be embedded in the wall of Cardiff Castle on the first day of the competition last year.

Since then they have gone on to install a breathtaking dragon on the banks of Caerphilly Castle, complete with reptile-like black and red scales and smoke-flaring nostrils, as well as bringing London traffic to a standstill with gruesome Independence Day aliens.
