Tuesday 12th June: "Colour Transfer" by Liz West

Chasing rainbows on my Canyon Roadlite and finding “Colour Transfer” by Liz West for British Land at Paddington Basin Thanks to Rhian Mclaren for the location inspiration!  This is such a cosmic discovery to come across whilst winding your way along the canal tow path.  Infact, probably the best new piece of public art in London right now!  It nestles perfectly in this hidden pocket of a Brutalist style concrete bridge.  The spectrum of metallic angular facets creates an optical illusion as you pass.  It's like the inside of a kaleidoscope for all to see and enjoy.  There are even two adjacent public ping pong tables for the best backdrop to a game of alfresco table tennis this Summer! 

I have also included here snaps of the Sir Peter Blake pattern painted barge at Paddington to make sure that you see both when you visit.
