Art in hotel rooms.

Over the weekend, the Mr. and I checked out the Hotel Art Fair in the Mandarin Oriental. Galleries from all over Asia–Tokyo, Seoul, and Malaysia were heavily represented– were each given a hotel room to display their pieces in. Never before have I seen so many paintings in, on, or around beds and bathtubs! The peonies below were my favorite… although I have to say it was actually painted in France.

I liked these Tokyo street scapes in the round.


And this was a fun way to capture hide and go seek — or is it duck, duck goose?

In this shot, you can see the cranes re-claiming more land in the harbor outside. The photographs were really beautiful takes of Mount Fuji.

Not surpisingly, luxury brands also had their place… here Cartier is pictured on broken porcelain pieces. Not sure really of the deeper meaning here?

  1. Oh my goodness Natasha! We loved the same artist. My favorite was the other painting by him with the colorful flowers. 🙂

  2. Love the Peonies! Quite like the fruit too, thanks for sharing.

  3. How cool is that?!! It looks like the children could be playing “Red Rover” too. I’m surprised no one ever got a broken arm playing that game while growing up!!
