In a time of political uncertainty, two UK-based artists are using color and vibrancy to bring a sense of comfort to London, with an installation titled 'Joy and Peace.'
The installation, which was created as part of London's new "Culture Mile Pop-Ups program," uses bright colors and geometric shapes to adorn the gritty, brutalist buildings, as well as complement the natural beauty of London's gardens. 'Joy,' which runs along London's Silk Street, uses unexpected geometric shapes to create an optical illusion, transforming an industrial wall into a gorgeously colorful surprise.
'Peace,' the second half of the installation, is situated in London's West Smithfield Rotunda Garden, in which the vibrancy is used to complement the natural wonders of the park -- creating a playful space for the public to enjoy.
