Kick-art your day with a visit to the vibrant outdoor canvas that is, St James’s.

Art of London is once again taking over central London, casting bold colours and vivid patterns across the West End cityscape - a series of accessible public art initiatives that are bringing art to the streets of London’s West End.

With a keen focus on creatively expressing London’s more positive and ‘Brighter Future’, up-and-coming artists have joined palettes to (literally) paint the town red. The crafty connoisseurs with an incredible flair for art and design that are blending their mediums together include:

Sam Williams

By creating sensorial experiential spaces using play structures, bold graphics and colourful patterns, Sam dreams up an immersive environment that evokes joy and draws inspiration from her childhood experiences of growing up in a theme park.

Zarah Hussain

The first ever artist to explore how core mathematical principles could be used to animate Islamic patterns. She creates geometric prints using six-fold symmetry to create shapes and patterns that inspire peaceful contemplation and meditation.

Fiona Quadri

A multi-disciplinary artist whose mixed-media illustrations to confront issues of race, belonging and identity. With her amusing use of colour, she illustrates portraits in an eccentric yet artful manner.

Harry Hill

While most know Harry Hill as a comedian, presenter and writer, he is a fantastical impressionist artist that creates animated structures and abstract portrayals of individuals. His work translates into augmented reality wherein you will digitally meet with his sculpted aliens in his piece ‘alienated-reality’.

Launch Date: 9th August – late October

Locations: St James’s Market, St James’s Churchyard, Piccadilly, Waterloo Place, Burlington Arcade, and Piccadilly Circus.

Stroll into St James’s to soak up an array of colours, lines and shapes that are transforming central London’s streets, spaces, and structures – courtesy of the wondrous collective of mixed-media artists.

Whilst you are already art-gazing, why not look into sprucing up the home setting with some tasteful art from the Royal Academy of Arts summer exhibition or international auction house Christie’s?
