SINGAPORE, 16 November 2018: InterContinental Hotels & Resorts commissioned London-based contemporary artist Alexander Hall to create an art installation, commemorating 200 InterContinental hotels and resorts around the world.
The art installation is made from 200 champagne bottles individually hand-painted by Alexander Hall in his bright and energetic drip-style.
The artwork on each bottle is unique with the design of each one inspired by the InterContinental brand’s 200 hotels, including this week’s opening of the InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland.
The installation by Alexander Hall will be displayed for a limited time at a number of InterContinental hotels worldwide over the course of the next few months.
Alexander Hall commented: “When I first started painting champagne bottles I just wanted it to make people feel something positive. Champagne for me means happiness, joy, celebration and the idea of bringing people together. That’s why I decided to paint on champagne bottles to celebrate the 200 InterContinental hotels.”
The upcoming InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland is located in a former quarry in southwest Shanghai. Other recent openings for the brand include InterContinental San Diego, located in the city’s waterfront, InterContinental® Sofia in Bulgaria, and InterContinental Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort, the Vietnamese holiday island of the same name.
InterContinental Hotels & Resorts was founded in 1946.
