Beach Tomato heads into the streets of London to showcase BVI-inspired art by the talented Victoria Lacroix.
The British Virgin Islands are known all too well for their spectacular landscape of dense greenery and vibrant tropical flora juxtaposed against languid turquoise waters and creamy white sands – a painter’s paradise some would say. Quite different to the quirky and ornate scenery of our eccentric London town, which inspires a thriving culture of avant-garde creative. But together, they make a spectacular and idiosyncratic combination. It’s for this exact reason that Beach Tomato joined forces with the British Virgin Island and commissioned the artful eye of London resident (and rising star), Victoria Lacroix, to capture the colourful approach to life that radiates from the BVI for our new guerrilla art exhibition. Victoria has created six pieces of artwork that we have strategically hidden on the streets of London (most specifically Soho and Shoreditch) for our followers and fellow art-lovers to discover. As winter draws in, we invite you to brighten your day with some BVI-meets-London artistic allure. So take to Twitter and Facebook for some upcoming clues, grab a cuppa and take a stroll around East London, because you never know what you might find. Happy searching.
To add to the excitement of the guerrilla exhibition, those keen art lovers who spot three of the six art pieces around London’s fair streets and upload to Beach Tomato’s BVI app will find themselves in the running to win an all-expense paid, holiday of a lifetime to the BVIs. For all those travel and art lovers, what’s not to love?
See you in the BVIs beach lovers.
