Adham Faramawy Lizzie Munn HERO

Art across the skies of the West End

Updates

Art of London and Art in Mayfair have partnered with the Royal Academy of Arts to present a vibrant aerial display in London’s West End, featuring over 60 flags.

Renowned artist Adham Faramawy has reimagined the rainbow flag just in time for Pride in London . His work, titled ‘Rainbow Flags,’ decorates Piccadilly with a stunning array of colours that blend and fold into each other, symbolising the diversity of LGBTQ+ identities.

Faramawy, an RA Schools alumni, has redesigned the Pride flag with soft contours and vibrant hues to make it more inclusive. On 29 June, as tens of thousands parade down Piccadilly, these vibrant 25 flags in the sky invite everyone to embrace unity and celebrate diversity.

In parallel, RA Schools student Lizzie Munn has created striking flag designs for Bond Street, Mayfair. Her work, entitled ‘The Sun Speaks,’ is on display from 10 June to 7 July. Munn’s large-scale print-based installations, shaped by their environment, are a highlight of this year’s Art in Mayfair campaign, which recognises emerging talent in the art world. Munn will also present her works at the RA Schools Show 2024, open from 14 June to 30 June 2024.

Art in Mayfair, now in its seventh edition, celebrates art, fashion, and culture from 10 June to 7 July 2024. This year, it also marks the completion of the RA Schools restoration and renewal project. Brands from Bond Street, Savile Row, and Mayfair will collaborate with artists and galleries to present pop-up installations, a Sculpture Trail, talks, walks, and special events, making this a must-see event for art lovers and cultural enthusiasts alike.

See ‘Rainbow Flags’ on Piccadilly from 10 June to 1 September and ‘The Sun Speaks’ on Bond Street from 10 June to 7 July.
