French artist turns disused petrol station into work of art
By James Herring on Monday, November 18, 2019
French artist Camille Walala has turned a disused, vintage petrol station into a stunning piece of public art.
She teamed up with creative house justkids – who for the last five years have been producing art in unexpected places across Fort Smith, Arkansas with the goal enriching life for the local community.
Walala told Design Boom ‘I love this canvas — it was exciting to do something really bold, that stands out on a bigger scale. We had a great team of people working with us for a few days, most of them were locals from Fort Smith who came to help and it has been an amazing execution of the project.’
