Holiday Inn Express
AZZURRO was commissioned by Graphis Arts (Queensland) to create a multi-storey art installation for the new Holiday Inn Express Adelaide.
43 huge boards were painted off-site by the artist over six weeks just before the hotel's opening on the 28th Aug 2017.
The piece will form the backdrop in memories of thousands of visitors to the city centre.
The design was influenced by elements of flow, water, lightning, leaf formations, and an underground urban art scene. Azzurro channelled flavours from his recent European tour through Amsterdam, Paris, Berlin and London. The installation uses oxidised iron rust paint and is entirely hand-painted. The art is designed to interact with visitors as they interact with it. 20+ boards per floor explode seamlessly throughout the hotel's vibrant open lobby.
