Public art trail ‘The Chelsea Look’ launches across the neighbourhood for Kensington+Chelsea Art Week

Supported by Cadogan, Kensington+ Chelsea Art Week returns for its 5th year with ‘The Chelsea Look’ – a public art trail across Chelsea throughout this summer

The Kensington+Chelsea Art Week Public Art Trail features world-class sculpture, installations and exhibits throughout the royal borough. Presented across nine zones, the Art Trail will take up residence at some of West London’s most beautiful and iconic sites.

Kensington + Chelsea Art Week is fast becoming one of the key moments in London’s cultural calendar and Román Lokati has specially developed a new body of work titled ‘The Chelsea Look’ for this years’ event. Displayed in prominent locations across the neighbourhood, the works are inspired by Chelsea style icons through the years, from Vivienne Westwood to the celebrated Chelsea Pensioners, and ask the question: Who will the style icons of tomorrow’s Chelsea be?

Explore the six ‘Chelsea Look’ installations:
– Vivienne Westwood at Royal Avenue, along the King’s Road
– Mary Quant by Duke of York Square
– Chelsea Pensioner by Duke of York Square
– A young couple at the top of Pavilion Road
– A punk – The Cadogan Hotel on Sloane Street
– 60’s style – the Hermes corner on Sloane Street, opposite Cadogan Gardens 

Based primarily on human observation in bustling metropolises, Lokati’s pieces capture the vibrancy and dynamism of everyday life. Román Lokati is a multidisciplinary artist born in Rota (Cádiz). He started his studies at the School of Arts and Crafts of Cádiz in 1988 before moving on to Central Saint Martins and the London College of Communication, where he graduated in 2006. He currently resides and develops his work in London.

Lokati has exhibited at many prestigious locations, including as part of the Tate’s ‘Inside Job’ exhibition, and currently as part of a residency with another fashion icon, Paul Smith. Locals, visitors and passers-by can spot the beautiful, colourful silhouettes brimming with character and energy across the Chelsea, honouring style icons and looks that have become synonymous with Chelsea over the years.
