Villa Walala in Broadgate’s Exchange Square: LDF 2017

Internationally renowned artist (and SEEN favourite) Camille Walala has created an immersive art installation, Villa Walala, that’s launching tomorrow Friday 15th in Broadgate’s Exchange Square close to Liverpool Street Station.

Set to grace the Square throughout this year’s London Design Festival, Villa Walala is a ‘soft-textured building-block castle’ covered with digitally printed patterns. SEEN looks forward to viewing and indeed, interacting with, this artwork next week. British Land are headline partner of the festival and commissioned Camille Walala to create the landmark project.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
