Harry Hill has been selected as one of the artists whose work will be on display in interactive exhibitions in the West End of London, as part of an exhibition of his work.

With works by Zarah Hussain and Fiona Quadri, Harry Hill has revealed a trail of tiny green figures in a piece titled Harry Hill's Alien Art Adventure.

In collaboration with National Gallery X and other prestigious institutions, the exhibits are part of the public showcase Brighter Future.

With each of the five alien sculptures accompanying artwork from the competition, Hill's intergalactic journey takes viewers on an intergalactic adventure.

Through an immersive augmented reality trail, visitors can take a tour of the area and hear original commentary from the comedian about each installation.

Several other installations, including those by Sam Williams, Morag Myerscough, and Faith Bebbington, are due to be unveiled throughout August and into October.

The Piccadilly Art Trail also features colorful and bold hanging paintings by Royal Academy artist Paul Huxley.

Members of the public will be able to participate in Hill's Alien Art Adventure by scanning QR codes at each installation.

It's been a pleasure collaborating with these artists and seeing our visions of a Brighter Future come to life through art, said Hill, a judge for the Brighter Future program at Art of London.

Each artist represents a vision of the future and a message of optimism in Brighter Future, one of the West End's biggest public art initiatives.

As well as Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square, Waterloo Place, and St James's Market, installations will be displayed in major spots across the capital.

A panel of curators including Hill and representatives from the National Gallery, Art Of London, and Arts Council England selected winners to receive funding and expert guidance.

National Portrait Gallery and the Royal Academy of Arts have also joined the process, collaborating on an open Ideas Lab to help artists realize their concepts.

During August 9-11, Hussain's vibrant and colorful installation Pop Geometry will be shown at Piccadilly Circus, highlighting London's cultural uniqueness.

Quadri's interactive installation Crossing Paths is currently on view in St James's Churchyard, where West End visitors will find free art in all corners of the district.

The immersive environment Williams designed will be installed in Leicester Square's gardens. As part of the installation, visitors will be encouraged to 'find their play.'

The Art Of London Season director, Mark Williams, said: 'After a successful first year, it's exciting to return with a campaign filled with joy and optimism.'

The streets of the West End will once again be transformed into vibrant art canvases by these amazing artists, so visitors can enjoy and experience the work for themselves.'
