    A bit of background

    The street art installations aim to bring the best of British and international culture to the airport, with unique recreations of four pieces of street art from around the globe including Colette Miller’s iconic Wings from Los Angeles, which have been snapped,  shared and liked hundreds of millions of times on Instagram.

    Alice Pasquini’s street art revolves around topics of femininity and independent  women and her murals tell  the stories of acts of kindness and love. ‘Above the Lines’ in Rome depicts three women jumping the height of a building and was painted to help raise funds for the town of Grisciano after it was hit by an earthquake.

    For Heathrow I wanted to represent a journey that was both real and imaginary. The girl jumps through a colourful space that invites passengers to do the same and join the scene. In this way, travel is both something physical and fantastical.

    Colette Miller created the Global Angel Wings Project in 2012 on the streets of Los Angeles, the City of Angels. They were painted to remind humanity that we are the angels of this earth. They are human sized interactive public art, wings that let people take photos and become  part  of the artwork. Since the first  pair in LA in 2012, Colette has painted wings around the world including across the USA, Australia, France, Japan, Cuba, Mexico, Kenya and now London.

    The Wings can be seen across six continents, but it is the first time I have painted them in London, and it’s special that they are in Heathrow and bringing people from across the world into contact with them in one place.

    Specialising in anamorphic graffiti, Portuguese artist Odeith uses perspective and shadow to create his own signature, obscure style that he calls Somber 3D. His Anamorphic Frog, which gives the illusion that is creeping up on you, is one of the most Instagrammed artworks in Lisbon.

    It’s an honour to recreate my work at Heathrow, and I think it’s an amazing way to show the best of the world’s street art to millions of people from all walks of life.

    Rogue One (real name Bobby McNamara) has work scattered all over Glasgow and there is even a mural trail where all his works can be traced. The Floating Taxi is his most famous and most Instagrammed artwork, depicting a man hailing a taxi floating with balloons on Mitchell Street in Glasgow. 

    "The original piece of street art depicted a floating taxi held up by balloons. The building I painted the mural on in Glasgow was owned by a lady whose late husband had been a taxi driver, so I wanted this to be the theme and, subconsciously inspired by the movie Up, things went from there." 

    It feels fitting to have been able to recreate it in Heathrow, and it’s an honour to have it there for so many people to see and hopefully appreciate each day.
