Peng Wei Display Comes to Beijing Hotel
I love it when hotels get involved with the arts. The new art hotels opening in Australia excited me, and I had a blast exploring the art-themed properties in Orlando. The latest hotel to jump on this trend is The Opposite House, in Beijing. Through March, The Opposite House will be showing two painting installations by Peng Wei, an artist famous for the delicate ink color paintings she creates on silk and paper.
Her new series, Bodies, consists of female forms on rice paper. The pieces are lit from within, providing a soft glow and likely to mesmerize anyone who passes by them. Rock Garden, also on display, is a series of rocks painted on transparent pastels, coming together in a garden representing the scholarly tradition.
The tone of your stay is set when you cross into a hotel's lobby, and the commitment made by The Opposite House is sure to get your visit started in a manner that will be tough to top.
