Artist in residence Andrea Ferolla at Hotel Eden


Artist in residence

Our hotel is shaped by the remarkable people who walk through our doors. Twice a month we welcome fashion illustrator Andrea Ferolla as our first artist in residence, who captures the hotel’s unique spirit through a series of thoughtful observational drawings.

Meet Andrea

The multi-talented Andrea Ferolla is an Italian illustrator, creative director and professor at the IED European Institute of Design, whose work is regularly exhibited at the London Fashion Illustration Gallery and published in international fashion magazines. It’s our pleasure to welcome him as our own artist in residence at the hotel.

Master at work

As he creates his work, our hotel becomes Andrea’s studio, where you may spot him behind a sketchbook capturing the warm gestures of our doormen, or perhaps the seamless service of our waiters at the restaurant. For Andrea, expressions and personalities create a unique narrative of life at the hotel, and all are beautifully revealed through his observational sketches.

The art of expression

Ferolla is celebrated for his expressive, timelessly romantic paintings and sketches. His distinctive style is defined by quick and sophisticated strokes, which underline the gestures, figures and attitude of the subjects he portrays. We can’t wait to see what he creates at our hotel.

When Art meets Fashion

Andrea took inspiration from the colours and landscapes of Rome to create a limited edition Chez Dede bag, as part of an exclusive collaboration with Hotel Eden. This signature yellow edition features Andrea’s illustrations on beautifully crafted Italian leather and cotton.

    Hotel Eden is a place of countless stories from thousands of travellers and passing guests. Through my illustrations I hope to capture the unique gestures and figures which bring the hotel to life.
