In the first in the newly created Art Series at Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane, today marks the launch of the Summer Exhibition, a unique showcase curated by art expert and founder of ARTOLOGY Magazine and Gallery Mark Robinow.
Created with the Hotel’s curious and well-travelled guests in mind, Robinow, a specialist in fine art, photography and contemporary art, has partnered with Four Seasons to showcase the journey of six artists around the globe through a range of stunning art work on display throughout the first floor, lining the grand lobby, and the unique lounge, bar and restaurant Amaranto.
Visitors to the Hotel can immerse themselves in the seasonally-inspired art work, which will be displayed until the end of September. The European artists include Gerard Prent, a painter focussing on colour and creative shapes; Anke Schaffelhuber, an artist of an empathic avant-garde; Philipp Siempelkamp, known for photographing distinctive European architecture; Vanessa Stelling, whose paint work consists of multiple layers of watercolour, acrylic paint, crayon, felt pen and ink; Johannes Weinsheimer, whose photographic works reflect his visual perception of locations he’s visited around the world; and Walter Kober, a legendary fashion photographer.
Commenting on the Summer Exhibition, Regional Vice President and General Manager at Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane John Stauss says, “From the moment they step into the lobby, guests will be wowed by this stunning collection of artwork. Bursts of colour jump out at you from Gerard Prent’s four metre wide painting behind our concierge desk, while in Amaranto Restaurant the hidden stories in Anke Schaffelhuber’s powerful photography draw the viewer in. The exhibition perfectly complements the vibrant London summer season, and we look forward to welcoming guests and Londoners alike to enjoy the show.”
Art Curator Mark Robinow comments: “This beautiful Hotel has received a new ‘dress’ creating the feeling of a private house filled with eclectic contemporary paintings and unique photographs.”
