A new large-scale public artwork by French artist Camille Walala has been installed in West London.
Comprising of two uniquely-designed pedestrian crossings and seven striking murals, the artwork entitled ‘Les Jumeaux’ (‘The Twins’), can be recognised by Walala’s signature use of geometric patterns and primary colours.
With the easing of lockdown measures set to continue, combined with the reopening of many local retailers and outdoor-dining destination The Set at Television Centre, the eye-catching installation to the area adds to the enlivenment of the area.
Camille Walala has drawn inspiration from the strong functional shapes that can be found on the facades of buildings, continuing her renowned installations in the urban landscape. ‘Les Jumeaux’ brings new life to White City with the use of vibrant colours and visually arresting patterns, connecting Walala’s distinctive joyful style with the rich architectural history of the area.
Walala’s artwork follows the success of international design duo Craig & Karl’s colourful transformation of a disused petrol station on Wood Lane, and Richard Wood’s ‘Holiday Home’ in Television Centre. With its playful design and buoyant colour palette, Walala’s latest artwork will inject long-lasting energy into the community.
