Camille Walala has this week unveiled a new public artwork made up of two joyful pedestrian crossings and seven striking murals, all featuring her famous geometric patterns, interesting shapes and use of primary colours.
Called Les Jumeaux, which translates as The Twins, Camille has transformed the crossings on South Africa Road and Wood Lane at White City Place in West London, while her murals adorn the façade of the local WestWorks building.
Camille drew inspiration from the strong functional shapes that can be found on the facades of nearby buildings, and her resulting artworks – full of vibrant colours and stand-out, playful patterns – bring a whole dose of new life to White City.
Camille'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.
"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," Camille tells us. "It's a balancing process to find happy accidents along the way while keeping the style simple and bold."
