In addition to the Gallery in the Air collection, and set to be on display at the London Heathrow Clubhouse, is a one-of-a-kind portrait of Virgin Atlantic founder Sir Richard Branson. Not for sale, the piece is built up of hundreds of pixels in a similar style to another of Eine’s iconic pieces – a portrait of HRH Prince Charles, which resides on the side of a building in his hometown of Hastings.
“We like to do things differently at Virgin Atlantic and are always finding new ways to surprise and entertain our customers. Our new Gallery in the Air is the first ever commercial art gallery in the sky and is a good example of this," says Sir Richard Branson. “I am a huge fan of Ben’s work and, like us, he does things differently and doesn’t follow the crowd. We’re delighted to be working with him, mixing things up a bit and having a bit of fun along the way.”
