The artistic partnership reflects Sofitel’s reputation for skilfully blending art and hospitality and will see the hotel showcasing the acclaimed sculptor’s fantastical figurines – the first time he has shown such a sizeable number of works ever in the UK. The imposing and dramatic sculptures, exhibited in collaboration with UNIT London gallery, will be on display in the lobby, next to the hotel’s entrance on Waterloo Place, permitting visitors a rare opportunity to immerse themselves in the extraordinary artwork of one of France’s most lauded contemporary artists.
By bringing Orlinski’s uniquely emotive style of contemporary art to London, Sofitel London St James demonstrates the ‘art de vivre’ that the luxury hotel group is known for. Nicolas Pesty, General Manager at Sofitel London St James comments:“From the moment they step into the hotel, guests will be wowed by Richard’s stunning collection of artwork. Dramatic colour, symbolic shapes and powerful emotions will stimulate guests and visitors. The exhibition perfectly complements our mission to provide our guests with a combination of inspirational French art and culture.”Download Press Release
