Passengers travelling on Virgin Atlantic Upper Class flights between London and New York this February will have the opportunity to avail of a new in-flight service, with the route hosting what will be the first ever airborne commercial art gallery.

‘The Gallery in the Air’ will operate from February 1 to 28 and will showcase the work of Ben Eine. The British artist came to global prominence when David Cameron presented one of his works to President Obama as a gift on the Prime Minister’s first state visit to Washington. The artist’s street art is also visible throughout London, most notably on Middlesex Street – also now known as Alphabet Street – where Eine has painted each letter of the alphabet on 26 consecutive shop shutters.
