The installation is part of HIGH STREET WINDOWS, a series of visual art commissions by Kensington and Chelsea Council.
My latest window vinyl has transformed a storefront in Notting Hill to a vibrant and positive landscape bringing positivity to the passers-by.
Produced by Kensington + Chelsea Art Week, a creative place maker organisation behind the annual KCAW public art trail, a series of thought provoking installations and murals have been strategically placed across Kensington and Chelsea to interact with the public in unique and unusual ways.
The project features site-specific window installations across Kensington, activating local high streets through imaginative interventions by contemporary artists. Taking over vacant store windows, 'High Street Windows' aims to showcase artists’ practices and engage visitors to the High Street, in a visual celebration of culture and creativity, turning vacant spaces into pop-up contemporary artworks.
Commissioned by Kensington and Chelsea Council, the installations encourage visibility of arts and culture unique to the borough, increasing positive perceptions of a vibrant and diverse area of London steeped in history and bustling with creativity, injecting creativity and promoting cultural engagement for a more sustainable high street.
Organiser Vestalia Chilton comments, “LUAP’s work is so relevant at a time when the population has been through such a traumatic twelve months. It is hopeful, inspiring and it reminds us of how isolated some have felt this past year. We hope that it resonates locally and reminds people that although we may feel isolated we are surrounded by likeminded souls.”
