For the 8th “Artist in Hotel Project” where an entire room is decorated by an artist, during about 1 1/2 months from 4th June to 22nd July, the artist Nanami Ishihara took the concept of “Festival” as her theme.
Ishihara says: “I wanted to paint a festival that never ends” . And just like its title “Festival”, the room has become alive. From the walls to the ceiling, people and animals are crowded together. Rabbits, elephants, gods and high school girls are all dancing in the festival on a red background. In the closet, there’s a painting of a “Happi Coat”, while an air vent is fashioned into the mouth of a dancing lion – the playfulness of the artist is everywhere.
The artist painted the room with the sincere wish that those who visited it would be reborn.

Artist in Hotel outline
At Park Hotel Tokyo, we are running a project called “Artist in Hotel”, where an artist creates a room decoration while staying in the room. The theme is: “The Japanese Sense of Beauty”. The artist draws pictures or calligraphy on the wall just like a painting, and each artist creates his or her own beautiful work based on this theme.
