GUANGZHOU, China – January 21, 2016 – The Ritz-Carlton, Guangzhou, in partnership with San Xuan Arte Place, will pay tribute to some of the world’s most iconic art works with a series of experiential activities honoring Vincent van Gogh from January 21st to February 21st 2016.
During the promotional period, Van Gogh’s work will be presented in the lobby of The Ritz-Carlton, Guangzhou as well as through the hotel’s WeChat platform, with the aim to promote art appreciation and to have a better understanding of the life of the world’s greatest artist and the story behind each painting. The exhibition will include a number of the artist’s most famous and iconic paintings such as Starry Night, Sunflowers, Bedroom in Arles and Self-portrait.
Every weekend, an educational live painting show by an artist will be held at the Pearl Lounge of The Ritz-Carlton, Guangzhou to vividly demonstrate the painting process. From the colors to the patterns, brightness and darkness, guests have the opportunity to watch the secrets of oil painting being revealed in the rich textures and colors. Guests can relax and spend the afternoon exploring the world of Van Gogh as presented by the artist.
