Park Hotel Tokyo announced on November 13 that extra production of the “Artist in Hotel” project will be held in its elevator hall from December 4 to 14.
The “Artist in Hotel” project is Park Hotel Tokyo’s version of “Artist in Residence” programs, whereby Japanese artists stay at the hotel and paint on walls and ceilings in guest rooms based on the concept “beauty of Japan.” In 2017, the project was honored at the Japan Tourism Awards.
Now, as an extra edition, artist OZ-Yamaguchi Keisuke, who created Artist Room Kabuki in the “Artist in Hotel” project, will paint in the elevator hall on the hotel’s B2F under the theme of “”HAZAMA”” (interstitial space).
The production will be open to the public, and people will be able to observe the artist’s work at their leisure.
Park Hotel Tokyo General Manager Takayuki Suzuki said:
“”This is a chance to see artists painting directly on the walls and ceilings of the hotel in person. Please come see their enthusiastic work.””
Park Hotel Tokyo Art Project Director Yoshitomo Fujikawa said:
“”This public-space installation will create an important area that beckons guests into the art hotel. Even non-staying guests are welcome to enjoy the installation.””
Through this production, Park Hotel Tokyo hopes to bring the enjoyment of the “beauty of Japan.”
