Carnaby Unveils an Outdoor Art Installation by Kristjana Williams

06 April, 2021

Carnaby Unveils an Outdoor Art Installation by Kristjana Williams Carnaby is proud to unveil an outdoor art installation by Kristjana Williams, just off Carnaby Street. The piece is part of an exclusive collection of 12 prints dedicated to our key workers on the frontline, whose hard work & diligence has kept us all going during the COVID pandemic.

The displayed artwork is a tribute to ‘the carer’ – the people that provide indispensable care and support to us all 24/7. The animal-depicted characters are painted in vibrant colours and playful tones, all in Kristjana’s signature style.

Kristjana’s collection of 12 artworks feature ‘hero animals’ to illustrate the roles including farmers, pharmacists, police officers, cleaners, shop workers, postmen, delivery drivers, refuse collectors, nurses, teachers, doctors and public transport workers. The vibrant colourful pieces celebrate just some of the people that have helped us through the pandemic

You can see all 12 artworks and download your favourite for free via carnaby.co.uk.

Kristjana Williams says: “In a very small way, we feel we are able to give something back. We are so full of admiration for the amazing job our key workers have done, and continue to do, that the inspiration for my piece came very quickly and naturally.”

The installation is located on the corner of Broadwick St and Marshall St and features a rainbow of hope. It has been printed on PVC free material, concentrating on the move to a more sustainable printable media.
