i was approached by the girls from capsule arts to create artworks for a new boutique hotel recently opened in sharjah; 72 by hues. 72 by hues is a contemporary, stylish hotel which uses colour and vibrancy as a theme throughout its spaces. along with other commissioned artists, i was asked to contribute works that follow a similar criteria and submit pieces that relate to the culture of sharjah and hotel theme.
working closely with capsule arts on the client's brief, i submitted revamped versions of an artwork i did years ago as an evite for ramadan (read post here). the final artworks worked well for the hotel as it relates to the culture of sharjah, using minarets as a main element in the artworks (sharjah being well known as a conservative, religious city) but presenting it in a abstract, contemporary way and using vibrant, pop colours.
the prints are currently up and on display at the hotel. if anyone does drop by, do make sure to check them out. i will definitely have to make a visit myself very soon.
thank you capsule arts for the opportunity. glad to have my artworks on display in a cool hotel.
