Renowned land artist Imran Qureshi has completed two giant artworks designed to be viewed from afar.

Imran jetted into Britain from Pakistan to unveil his two works Bridging and Here & There near Baitings Reservoir at Ripponden.

Little more than two hours after landing at Manchester Airport, he was in the windswept wilds of West Yorkshire.

The works are part of the Yorkshire Festival’s Fields of Vision project to celebrate the Tour de France.

In all a dozen artworks have been sown, cut, weaved or painted into the landscape.

The idea is in-keeping with French Tour traditions where huge artworks can be seen from above from helicopters which track the cyclists’ every move.

Imran’s work was installed on Yorkshire Water-owned land and will send a message to the world this weekend.

Bridging is a calligraphy work which spells out Tour de France in a form of Urdu.

Imran said the inspiration came from Turkey where East meets West and was about bringing communities and peoples together.

Here & There resembles exploding splashes of water to symbolise the reservoir.

Imran, who has just installed artwork on the roof of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, said his Yorkshire works were the largest he had attempted.

“This is something very different for me,” he said. “I really wanted to be part of it.”
