Before the flight even lands, visitors will be greeted with "Ice and Slice" by Camille Walala. This creative and colorful installation gives our visitors a taste of the energy and art infused in everyday life here in Northwest Arkansas. This installation was produced by OZ Art NWA and curated by Just Kids in partnership with XNA Regional Airport.
Camille Walala (b.1975) is a multidisciplinary London-based French artist working across the fields of art, architecture, textile art and graphic design. Her practice has taken her all over the world to transform homes and workspaces with her signature tribal-pop style. 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.
As purveyor of positivity, expressed through vibrant colors and bold patterns, Walala now focuses on projects with greater scope and at a greater scale than ever before, with an overriding ambition to imbue the world’s urban landscapes with eye-popping installations full of soul-stirring energy.
