Artist Lois O’Hara Rejuvenates a Pair of Tennis Courts in Bradford, U.K.
The Grand Slam season culminated with 18-year-old U.K. phenom Emma Raducanu winning the US Open women’s final. Fellow Brit Lois O’Hara is doing her part in inspiring the next generation of players with her recently completed tennis courts at Northcliffe Park in Bradford. The similarly young artist first made a name for herself in the public-space realm with the Brighton basketball court she painted in 2018 with wavy saturated blues and pinks and the word joy. “My signature style is based on the idea of using fluid lines and curves to encourage movement—whether that’s physically or imaginatively, in the mind,” the self-described sunset chaser says. “These colors are vibrant, so they stand out, but also carefully calibrated so the focus isn’t taken away from the ball as it’s hit across the court.” Meanwhile, the focus continues on O’Hara, who has projects underway for Newmor Wallcoverings, brands Estrella Damm and Fedrigoni, and London’s Battersea Power Station and Design District, a new coworking complex for creatives.
