World-class designer Paul Smith will exhibit bike art from James Straffon at his global store in London Heathrow, Airport Terminal 5. The art will be viewable from July 4 to July 21. Straffon is the curator and artist of the NÖ gallery.
Tthe art wall will be located at the departure lounge in the airport. It will be in celebration of the upcoming Tour de France.
Straffon’s talent was influenced by Taliah Lempert, cyclist and artist. Straffon’s medium is paint, but he also dabbles in mixed-media. He aims to reach his audience and bring them into the world of cycling through his imagery. “Our compositions celebrate the bicycle, in all its many forms… with its beauty of speed, its dancing flames, its dynamism, and its simple honest appeal — as something one might enjoy looking at,” said Straffon.
