OLI-B FOR ART BASEL
NETJETS COLLABORATES WITH STREET ARTIST FOR 2018
To celebrate our seventeen-year partnership with Art Basel, NetJets have collaborated with Belgian graffiti artist Oli-B. The renowned street artist was commissioned to create a vibrant installation that will be displayed during the show in the NetJets VIP area in the Art Basel Collectors Lounge. As the world’s leading private aviation company, the collaboration showcases our unwavering commitment to providing our Owners with unique experiences, immersing them in the world of art and design.
Art Basel Installation
The striking installation amalgamates the essence of air travel with Oli-B’s visually fluid style of contemporary art. Many of our owners are art collectors and enthusiasts, making Art Basel an annual highlight in the calendar. Indeed, Art Basel is one of the busiest weeks of the year for NetJets flights, and flight traffic to Basel increased by 34% between 2016 and 2017. This year over 130 flights are planned to Basel during the show.
Oli-B is a painter, illustrator and street artist from Brussels, Belgium, whose work excites viewers with abstract and figurative shapes characterised by vivid colour patterns. He combines the hustle and bustle of big cities with spontaneous elements born from his imagination.
NetJets creates an annual six-day event at Art Basel, with the VIP lounge providing owners with hospitality throughout the week, as well as access to the show during the VIP days. Oli-B’s work is a unique experience for our owners, exemplifying both NetJets’ passion for contemporary art and our commitment to bringing innovative experiences to our clients.
