OK Mobility pays an international tribute to Mallorca through urban art

May 31, 2021
  • A large mural, by the Mallorcan artist Joan Aguiló, will welcome all Mallorcans, visitors and tourists at Palma airport.

OK Mobility pays homage to Mallorca, its birthplace, with a large mural at Palma airport by the Mallorcan artist Joan Aguiló, who specialises in large format urban art. The project is an international tribute that the global mobility company has wanted to pay to the island and its inhabitants while luring tourists and visitors.

With this action, the company also intends to stimulate the recovery of mobility and tourism to contribute to the economic rebound of the islands. For this reason, the mural has been erected in such a strategic place for tourism as Palma airport, one of Mallorca’s main entry and exit points.

For his part, the CEO of OK Mobility, Othman Ktiri, says that “this is OK’s great gift to Mallorca, our place of origin, for everything it has given us since we were born almost two decades ago. A mural that, in addition, represents not only our main activity, global mobility but also how excited we all are to move again, to travel, to feel, to live…”. “With this creation, we will warmly welcome all travellers and tourists who revisit us, just like they deserve“, adds Ktiri.

For this project, OK Mobility has joined forces with the Mallorcan artist Joan Aguiló, author of the work, who states that “I was very excited to receive this proposal from OK”. “My creations always revolve around local identity, and being able to capture my work in an internationalshowcase such as Palma airport has allowed me to show the world the character and identity that characterise the inhabitants of this island, as well as our daily life”.

In this sense, Ktiri has highlighted that “partnering with a great Mallorcan painter such as Joan Aguiló reaffirms our company’s commitment to supporting and giving international visibility to local artists”.

The mural, which is already on display at Palma Airport, has been made with plastic paint and covers an area of more than 500 square meters.
