A love-ly new artwork curls through the bustling Duke of York Square in central London, thanks to Yoni Alter (previously), who celebrates the most enigmatic and important emotion in human experience. Approachable from various vantage points, the piece appears like a squiggly red line at first glance, but when viewed from the right perspective, the abstract curves reveal the word “love.”

A continuation of Alter’s exploration of joy through the use of color and scale, “Love Continuum” nods to the bold, graphic qualities of Pop Art and iconic works like Robert Indiana’s large-scale aluminum “LOVE” sculptures. At nearly 25 feet long, Alter’s elegant, playful tribute to connection and togetherness sparks a spirited note for summer.

“Love Continuum” will be on view through August as part of a public art trail corresponding with Kensington and Chelsea Art Week. Find more on Alter’s website and Instagram.
