Columbia Road is a street in East London which is transformed into a paradise of flowers with the flower market every Sunday.

Rebecca Louise Law —London-based installation artist— blends art, nature and people. She worked in numerous public spaces and with some of the most influencers fashion labels as Hermès, McQueen and Gucci over the past few years.

With her conceptual work and by using hundreds of suspended flowers as artistic medium, Rebecca Louise Law transforms not only public spaces and museums but also encourages social change and challenges the natural boundaries of art.
