Uplift Aerospace Unveils Cloud-breaking Art Program to Launch with Amoako Boafo’s Triptych on the Blue Origin New Shepard Rocket

Uplift Aerospace, a pioneer of lunar technologies premiering the multiplanetary marketplace, revealed its new Uplift Art Program with the announcement of its first art commission for space travel, slated to launch this fall. The award-winning international artist Amoako Boafo has been selected to create the inaugural Suborbital Triptych, a work to be painted on exterior panels of a Blue Origin New Shepard rocket.

“The purpose of the Uplift Art Program is to inspire new ideas and generate dialogue by making space accessible and connected to human experiences,” explained Josh Hanes, the CEO of Uplift Aerospace. “Artists have a unique capacity to evoke fresh perspectives and interpret unfamiliar terrain. The profound strength of Amoako’s portraits for the first Suborbital Triptych will bring another dimension to the power that propels the New Shepard rocket.” The development of the Suborbital Triptych series and the Uplift Art Program is curated for Uplift Aerospace by Magnet Art Group and its founder Jill Clark, with offices in Miami and Berlin.
