There’s an eye-catching new addition to West London’s streetscape – a colorful mural that transforms a busy crosswalk into a vibrant and playful walking path for pedestrians .Entitled Les Jumeaux, or “The Twins,” it is a new large-scale public urban intervention by French artist and designer Camille Walala. The project encompasses two pedestrian crossings and seven striking murals, created with geometric patterns and primary colors, Walala’s signature style.

In Walala’s work, she takes cues from the strong functional shapes that can be found on the façades of buildings, continuing her renowned installations in the urban landscape. Les Jumeaux brings new life to white city by just using vibrant colors and visually capturing patterns that connect the artist’s style with the rich architectural history of the area.

‘This was a really exciting commission because I got to explore the area so much more than I have in the past, and bring colorful, joyful patterns to this part of london,’ comments Walala. ‘I like when my projects begin with this element of curiosity. I was inspired by the rich architectural details and began working in my sketchbook, making drawings and collages, which grew into the bigger scale installation. it’s a balancing process to find happy accidents along the way while keeping the style simple and bold.’
