Artist Camille Walala is slowly but surely covering London with her beautifully bold and colourful art work! It feels like a welcome relief after the drab, grey months we’ve dealt with during lockdown so we’re sure the people of London can’t thank Camille enough for injecting some vibrant positivity into the streets.
So far Camille has three amazing new public art projects all across London. The first two have already been completed; two striking pedestrian crossings in White City and a giant mural in Leyton called the Walala Parade.
The pedestrian crossings were released in August and are situated on South Africa Road and Wood Lane. They’re titles Les Jumeaux (which means The Twins) and accompanied by new murals on the WestWorks building.
The Walala Parade project in Leyton was initiated by local businesses who wanted to brighten up the street, to re-energise the area and encourage footfall. The mural spans a whole street of buildings, covering them in happy, bright geometric patterns.
Next up for Camille Walala is the London Mural Festival where she will be covering the Adams Plaza Bridge that leads to Crossrail Place in eye-catching geometric shapes and bold colours.
