VistaJet, the world’s premier provider of luxury private aviation services, is proud to announce its collaboration in the sponsorship of “The Hallelujah World Tour” – the first New York solo presentation of street artist RETNA.
The exhibition, which opens at 560 Washington Street, New York City on February 10, 2011, is being co-sponsored by VistaJet and Bombardier Business Aircraft and will be the first of three international exhibitions of RETNA’s work.
Yielding an unmistakable aesthetic that integrates appropriated contemporary photography, traditional painting and a unique glyphic style, RETNA has emerged as one of the most prolific graffiti artists in the contemporary art world. The Hallelujah World Tour will feature a selection of work using a diverse range of mediums, including painting, sculpture, and photography.
As part of VistaJet’s on-going collaboration with RETNA, the artist will also create a unique work on the tail of one of VistaJet’s Global Express XRS aircraft. This was unveiled in April.
Thomas Flohr, chairman and founder of VistaJet, said: “Art is a huge personal passion for me as well as many of our clients. We are delighted to be supporting the ground-breaking work of this unique contemporary artist.
