The sunny weekend has left its mark after a series of colourful artworks were installed in west London.
London-based French artist Camille Walala created two pedestrian crossings and seven murals outside the entrance to White City tube station, in her characteristic bright geometric patterns.
Entitled Les Jumeux (The Twins), the large-scale artworks were inspired by the shapes of surrounding building façades, and have been commissioned to adorn The Set, a new outdoor dining hub outside Television Centre.
This is the first public artwork of Walala’s to be created in west London, after her mural on Old Street’s Dream Come True building brought her to fame in 2015.
She said: “This was a really exciting commission because I got to explore the area so much more than I have in the past, and bring colourful, joyful patterns to this part of London. I like when my projects begin with this element of curiosity.
“I was inspired by the rich architectural details and began working in my sketchbook, making drawings and collages, which grew into the bigger scale installation. It's a balancing process to find happy accidents along the way while keeping the style simple and bold.”
Les Jumeux is part of White City Place’s cultural programme, following on from design duo Craig & Karl’s transformation of a disused petrol station on Wood Lane and Richard Woods’ colourful bungalow, Holiday Home.
