Artexpo New York is proud to reach for the sky this year as it welcomes Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ) to the art scene. As a show partner, ACJ is bringing two prestigious artists together to evoke the luxurious experience of flying with ACJ.
ACJ Nimbus, a stunning display of “cloud creativity” by internationally renowned artist Berndnaut Smilde and world-class fine art photographer RJ Muna, is making its debut at Artexpo New York.
The ACJ Nimbus artwork comprises three scenes—“Serenity,” “Freedom,” and “Harmony”—which act as a visual metaphor for owning and travelling in an Airbus corporate jet. The scenes tell the story, so they are simply accompanied by the tagline “Your world above the clouds.” You’ll be at once amazed and immersed in the fantasy and magic of Smilde’s visual artistry, expertly captured by Muna.
Smilde created the clouds by spraying a fine mist of water in the air, and then blowing smoke onto it. “Every cloud is different,” explains Smilde, “but with practice you can get roughly the shape you want, where you want it.”
Muna added, “The challenge was to capture an ephemeral and living artwork, lasting only a few seconds, in a way that echoed elegance, space, and relaxation.”
ACJ’s reasons for using these two master artists to depict the ACJ brand are evident. ACJ’s unique expertise creates the world’s most rewarding flying experience by providing their customers with the finest service, best technology, and highest standards of care in corporate aviation.
The scenes echo the liberty of movement, relaxation, and peacefulness that are the hallmark of travel in an Airbus corporate jet. And lucky for all of us at Artexpo New York 2017, the show’s partnership with ACJ has brought a full display of Smilde and Muna’s amazing Nimbus collaboration to the VIP Lounge area for our enjoyment. Stop by and learn more about these two remarkable artists and how ACJ can transport you into the clouds in comfort and elegance.
