Renowned Italian sculptor and painter Mimmo Paladino has become the first person to turn a private jet into a work of art with the installation of a customized Piaggio P.180 Avanti II aircraft at the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan.
Dubbed the “Cacciatore di Stelle” (Star Hunter), Paladino’s plane (above) will be on display in the famed luxury shopping mecca through April 28. Paladino decorated the turboprop with ancestral symbols, constellations and geometrical designs in homage to the skies in which it travels.
The plane is part of an exhibition of Paladino’s work hosted by Milan’s historic Palazzo Reale, including more than 50 of his artworks from the ’70s to the present day. The P.180 Avanti was chosen for the project as an expression of “Italian genius in design and engineering.”
