Another Belgian icon was the inspiration behind the most recent masterpiece created at International Aerospace Coatings for Brussels Airlines, at the Ostrava, Czech Republic facility.
The flying artwork depicts internationally acclaimed, surrealist artist, Rene Magritte and is the second in a series of aircraft, crafted by the IAC team, following on from the Tintin aircraft, unveiled by the Belgian airline last year.
The design on the Airbus A320 was expertly crafted by three Belgian designers, with the artwork brought to life by airbrush artist Andre Eisele, who also worked on the Rackham project. The outside incorporates two of Magritte’s paintings; ‘La Clairvoyance’ and ‘Le Retour’, whilst the cabin interior features portions of ‘Le Retour’ and ‘La Belle-Societe’.
The special Magritte livery shall remain on this aircraft until 2022.
Notes from Brussels Airlines: Spotters, aviation enthusiasts and Magritte fans can follow the whereabouts of the plane on brusselsairlines.com and are invited to share their pictures tagged with #SNMagritte.
