Transformer Sculpture Stolen From Outside Artist’s Long Island City Studio

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — An artist is looking for her Transformers sculpture that was stolen outside of her studio in Queens.

Artist Annalisa Iadicicco told 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria that her sculpture was stolen from outside her studio door on Jackson Avenue in Long Island City on Aug. 31.

The cartoon character Transformer is 5-feet-tall. She made it out of what she called reclaimed objects.

Local school children helped her put it together.

“I transformed car bumpers,” Iadicicco told 1010 WINS. “When we put it together it looked like a face, but everyone could see like a Transformer.”

She thinks someone came with a van or a pickup truck and it’s so big it would take two people to move it.

She hopes the Transformer has a good home.
