The Exhibitionist Hotel

The Exhibitionist Hotel is a constantly evolving artwork. The hotel curator, Vestalia Chilton, has worked on a range of projects to bring colour and adventure to the walls of the Art Corridors, the Bar and Reception galleries downstairs, and a total takeover from the siter hotel, The Gainsborough, opposite the road by artist Sasha Bowles inspired by the age of Enlightenment and the collections of the museums next door such as the Natural History Museum and the V&A.

This exhibition by Michael Wallner celebrates the beauty of Lonoon through the shapes, outlines and colours that define its character. London, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Paris, Singapore, Miami, and Dubai all feature in this show. .

Before becoming a full-time artist Michael spent more than twenty years in the television industry working on entertainment programs, talk shows, documentaries, animations and a children’s novel. He even had a job writing poetry about pirates.

But creating original and innovative art was always his true passion and on of his favourite things about being an artist is experimenting.

"I love the challenge of finding a different way of presenting the world around me, whether it’s the quest to find the extraordinary views, strangle angles and fantastic shapes, or the search for the most unusual materials to work with."

About

This exhibition is an ode to London 'My Love Affair With London' as Michael puts it.

"Many of my pieces are created from aerial photographs, often taken while hanging out of helicopters with the doors off. The best patterns and abstract shapes in our landscapes can be seen from the air, I think. The grid patterns of New York’s avenues, LA’s Hollywood Hills, the beautiful shape of the Thames winding through London, and Hong Kong’s sensational skyline have all inspired my work."
