Not content with exhibiting his work in London, Paris, Los Angeles, the White House, and the shop shutters of Shoreditch, street artist Ben Eine has turned his spray cans on the first class cabin of a Virgin Atlantic plane.
Eine is selling off ten transatlantic-themed artworks next month through Virgin’s Gallery in the Air, allowing discerning passengers to buy the pieces “as they would a duty-free shopping purchase”, enthuses the airline. Those visiting the Virgin lounge at Heathrow can also view Eine’s portrait of Sir Richard Branson. Font-tastic stuff.
