Four Seasons Hotel Miami hosts a “Brickell Art Walk” at the upcoming Bahia Nights on April 29, 2016 from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. The neighbourhood’s newest Happy Hour invites New York-based French-American painter Eric Demarchelier to present his 2016 work honouring Pablo Picasso. The exhibition features fourteen oil-on-canvas paintings to be showcased at Bahía, the recently renovated poolside restaurant and lounge.
Trained by St. Petersburg master painter Leonid Gervis, Demarchelier has been avidly painting for the past 25 years. A native of Normandy, he divides his time between New York City and his atelier in Shelter Island. Known for his range of complex and engaging abstract styles, Demarchelier merges formalistic opposites of colour, shape, texture and form to evoke the perceptual field. In this new series of paintings, Demarchelier pays homage to select classics from Pablo Picasso’s collection, from Dora Maar to Toreador.
On April 29, Four Seasons Hotel Miami will host an “art walk” on its 7th floor pool terrace featuring works by Demarchelier. The exhibit will take place during the new monthly happy hour Bahía Nights, which feature Veuve Clicquot Rosé and Belvedere vodka, a specialty Bahia bites and cocktail menu with offerings starting from USD 9, and a DJ. Tucked atop the 7th floor of the AAA Five Diamond Hotel, the two-acre tropical oasis was recently named as having one of the “Best Hotel Pools in Miami” by Condé Nast Traveler. Guests will preview Demarchelier’s artworks while strolling through a lush canopy walkway located adjacent to the rooftop pool.
Demarchelier’s paintings will be on sale during the Bahía Nights exhibition. The paintings will be priced between USD 7,000 and 10,000. This event is free and open to the general public.
