SIZE / FINISH: 10m x 2.3m, Tactile
STORY: Generate Studio, a London based design studio, was tasked with transforming a Metropolitan Police car park into a new co-working space. Once the project was close to finishing they realised something was missing; the massive white wall that framed the space needed a lift. Having worked with The House of Artists in the past, they contacted Ben and Georgie to see if they could help to transform the wall into something with the potential to awe and inspire the people working in the building as well as add colour, drama and glamour to the industrial backdrop. The Maria Rivans ‘Frieda’ installation fulfils this brief beautifully.
“Having commissioned Ben to do some beautiful pieces of art in previous projects, we knew we were in for a treat. We were totally spoilt for choice with the artists on offer, but finally selected a Maria Rivans piece. The result blew us away and everyone in the space absolutely loves the installation. It finished the project off beautifully” Liz Gann, Director, Generate Studio
