It is not new for public transport to be painted and used as an advertising tool. But if that art is taken to the aerospace, then it’s something else altogether! Well, that is precisely what you stand a chance to see on the tail of a VistaJet Global Express XRA. As per a deal between VistaJet and Bombardier Aerospace, and street artist RETNA, the $60 million luxury aircraft that sees crème de la crème of the world will be the highlight of VistaJet’s fleet of 31 private jets. The painting spots influences of gang graffiti, Asian calligraphy, Incan and Egyptian hieroglyphics, and Hebrew and Arabic script, which RETNA describes as an “international visual language.”
The artwork was officially put for the world to enjoy at EBACE 2011, Geneva. The project comes in just as VistaJet and Bombardier sponsored RETNA’s “Hallelujah World Tour,” presented by Andy Valmorbida and Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld, launched in February in New York. The tour will also visit places including London and Hong Kong for the remainder of the year.
