Mayfair, London W1K 1PN
Art is good for the soul. It makes you look, think, imagine. Art takes you to new places, offers fresh perspectives, raises questions. It makes you feel. As part of this ethos, every space at 45 Park Lane is a potent, living canvas for a collection of art by contemporary British artists. We invite you to explore them at your leisure, to find yourself, to lose yourself.
Our current exhibition
Chris Wood - Light Pattern
Kicking off the first exhibition of the year, talented artist Chris Wood introduces 2019 with her innovative art installations inspired by the abundant, ever-changing light in the hotel. Known internationally for her stunning works which make clever use of light reflections with dichroic, it’s set to be an exciting exploration of light, colour and shadow.
Nicholas Kontaxis – Bright One
Nicholas Kontaxis is a 23-year-old California-based contemporary artist, whose mesmerising, large-scale abstract paintings are a brilliant riot of primary colours. Over the last three years his bold canvases have taken the American art scene by storm, with a slew of impressive commissions from the likes of Roger Federer, Coachella and the owners of Los Angeles Chargers. Now, his extraordinary works arrive at 45 Park Lane for their international debut.
Mary Stephenson - Egg Roll Play
Talented London-based artist Mary Stephenson creates larger-than-life paintings and 3D artworks to fill a room with a surreal projection of reality. Rather than working with A4 canvas, she chooses to use dramatic large-scale backdrops and surreal planes and props, which give life to her creative imagination. The result is an extraordinary and unusual set of works which invites you to play, explore and discover.
Alexander James - A Bright Lantern
London-based artist Alexander James has earned a reputation for his abstract creations using a variety of mediums, including paint, fashion and film – with striking results. With his new exhibition at 45 Park Lane he’ll transform the lobby and BAR 45 with large-scale canvas works and multi-faceted immersive installations using digital print, photography and video, inspired by the openness of the ocean.
Over the years our exhibitions have brought extraordinary things to the hotel. From the UK’s fresh young talent to the world’s seasoned masters, each artist comes to 45 Park Lane with a unique perspective, and we’ve been proud to showcase their works. We invite you to explore them all.
Art - A living ethos at 45 Park Lane
Art is our landscape. The hotel is a living gallery of exciting and groundbreaking British art.
“As well as being a stylish harbour and providing exquisite service, a luxury hotel should provide guests with an inspiring and intriguing environment which we achieve through our constantly evolving art programme. It is always exciting to think we may be exhibiting the next Hockney or Hirst, but above all we show what we find interesting, and what we think our guests will enjoy seeing.”
General Manager, 45 Park Lane
