Sculptor of Wall Street's bull wants 'Fearless Girl' moved

New York City initially granted permission for Fearless Girl to remain in place until April 2 but recently extended the lease until February 2018.

The statue was installed by investment firm State Street Global Advisors to highlight efforts to get more women on corporate boards.

Mr Di Modica objects to Mayor Bill de Blasio's decision to allow the Fearless Girl statue to remain in place opposite of the Bull for one year, after a public clamouring for the statue to become permanent. The Charging Bull was dumped by the artist in front of the the New York Stock Exchange without a permit, following the 1987 stock market crash. He's called "Fearless Girl" an "advertising trick", and plans to address the matter in a press conference on Wednesday, according to attorney Norman Siegel.

"It's really bad", a frail Arturo Di Modica, 76, told reporters, his voice thick with emotion and barely audible.

The firm that commissioned the statue said it was "grateful" to those "who have responded so enthusiastically" to its message of "the power and potential of having more women in leadership".

"What this girl represents is the present, but also the future", Tisdalle told the Times.

But Visbal has made no secret of her admiration for her statue's massive counterpart: "The bull is attractive", she told The New York Post in March.

These tweets about the "Charging Bull" artist opposing the "Fearless Girl" statue prove not everyone agrees with the artist's opposition. He wants the girl moved.

The statue of the girl with her hands defiantly on her hips has become a tourist sensation since she was installed across from the bull last month. "My bull is a symbol for America".

Even the method of the statue's installation - dropped unheralded in its spot overnight - paid homage to the bull it confronts.

He put a finer point on the matter in a March interview with the New York Post and MarketWatch: "That is not a symbol!" They have filed several information requests to city officials and departments involved in the permitting process for Fearless Girl.

"The world is about money, but there are people like Arturo I believe and others who it's not necessarily the sole or motivating factor", he said.
