Our Hotel in Dubai regularly encourages artist to display their work at the hotel, making paintings and works of art accessible to everyone through the day.
Online PR News – 19-May-2015 – Dubai – The Media One Hotel, Media City's vibrant hotel in Dubai launched "Into the Unknown Exhibition", an Art exhibition by Dan Ellwood on 10 May 2015. This paved the way for many art lovers, designers and creative arts enthusiasts to appreciate Dan Ellwood's work in his first solo exhibition outside the United Kingdom.
Daniel Ellwood is a 25 year old from Cheshire, with a BA Hons Contemporary Art Practice - 2.1 and an MA Art & Design. He displays 20 original scalpel designs and digital prints at the Media One for a limited period. Dan uses a self- devised technique and his art is a journey of exploring the darkness and unmasking the unknown. "Most of his designs remain a mystery until you understand and begin to reveal the void underneath, as opposed to conventional painting, where the layer of pain that is used to build a picture into the original idea. Ellwood's work is intriguing and conspicuous because he does not focus on a single point of view, but instead make the eye roam and explore different aspects of the work." stated an art enthusiast.
For the original raw design, the surface is first layered digitally on the screen, and then transferred to the canvas using digital printing. The subject, a static spirit, is then transformed into landscapes of shifting forms, superimposing the artists hand-drawn image, into works of art classified as early modernism, decor and abstract paintings.
Dan Ellwood's drawing style employs baroque and hallucinogenic elements cut from paper and transferred to screen to layer their space and build color relations that correspond to surface and depth, giving the viewer the benefit of the stylistic effects of the superimposition of images and their illusory power.
"Dan Ellwood's work is a portrayal of a formless and critical adornment that adds elements like motifs, each one going beyond the traditional artistic narrative." said a regular traveler who stays at the business hotel in Dubai. I have seen many art exhibitions, in between my work schedule by many artists around the world, but Ellwood's work is unique and awakens the creative juices".
According to the management of the Hotel " We are proud to be featuring Dan Ellwood's work at our Hotel, out of the many hotels in Dubai. We are no stranger to the art loving fans of Dubai, as we regularly open our doors to popular artists, with the objective of making fine quality art accessible to the this part of the world from dusk till dawn.
