High Art

Travelers flying on Virgin Atlantic between New York and London this month are being treated to the world’s first transatlantic, commercial art gallery. The “Gallery in the Air” is operating from February 1 through the 28th and is exclusively showing the work of British street artist Ben Eine. The artist is probably best known for his “Alphabet Street” project in London where he painted each letter of the alphabet on twenty-six shop shutters.
