Camille Walala x Industry City
Camille Walala is a purveyor of positivity, expressed through vibrant color and bold pattern. Commissioned by WantedDesign and sponsored by Industry City, Walala will create a permanent monolithic mural wrapping the facade of a prominent building at Industry City in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Drawing on influences including the Memphis Movement, the Ndebele tribe and op-art master Victor Vasarely, Walala has an irrepressible enthusiasm for playful, graphic patterns that invoke a smile in all who view them. Visit us in May to see Walala’s mural.
“I’m thrilled to be producing a design for a 40m building – my tallest so far. The design has been inspired by the architecture of the building, particularly the repetition of the windows. The site is bathed in the most beautiful colous at sunset, which has inspired my palette for the project. I’m really excited about this design – I am producing something quite different.” Camille Walala
