Corbineau brightens up Orly

Over recent months, the mess of renovation work at Orly Airport in Paris has been artistically screened by a rather nice illustrated mural from Antoine Corbineau

Illustrator Corbineau was commissioned by Paris Airports (ADP) and agency W&Cie. His mural, however, is about to be dismantled, but the work will not go to waste –  it is to be chopped up into three parts to be used in other areas in the airport over the next two years. “They are also planning to invite other artists for similar projects in the future as the result was very well received,” Corbineau says.

Here’s the whole thing in sections.

See more of his work here, including this rather nice poster for Melbourne and a New Year’s card
