Floating World at The White Box, Nobu Hotel London Portman Square’ from 21 February

FLOATING WORLD: GAVIN MITCHELL

Launching 21 February for a limited time only, Gavin Mitchell will be showcasing his new exhibition “Floating World” as part of his East Meets West series. This incredible body of work considers the evolution and influences of western trends within the floating world composition. 

Challenging cultural norms by deconstructing our preconceived notions of Japanese culture – Gavin’s creation of layering imagers allows a deeper investigation into how East and West aesthetics can juxtapose and at the same time harmonise. 

The genre of Japanese art – Ukiyo-e  浮世絵 (pictures of the Floating World) began in the 17th century – exuding themes of female beauty, erotica, folk tales and landscapes mirroring the rising hedonistic lifestyles of the merchant classes. 

To discover Gavin’s Floating World, visit The White Box located at the front of our hotel

‘Feelscape Interactive Exhibition’

EXPLORE ‘FEELSCAPE’: MATT JUKES

A unique concept, ‘Feelscape’ uses a specially designed AI camera to turn each viewer’s emotions into a personalised piece of art, whilst empowering the viewer to stop and reflect. Visitors are then invited to the The Lounge for a cocktail meticulously crafted in collaboration with House of Suntory, inspired by one of these emotions.

With ‘Feelscape’ the camera is turned onto the viewer as their personal emotions are used to form a piece of art. As the user is encouraged to picture their future, a camera using AI locates 148 points on the individuals face. Jukes has assigned a colour to seven emotions including joyful, surprised, worried, indignant, sad, fearful and angry, to transform each viewers’ emotions into a colourful, personalised ‘Feelscape’ piece of artwork acting as a reminder of the future they can create. Each user will be able to download their own Feelscape onto their mobile device or purchase a personal art print in various size.

Guests can enjoy cocktails including the Sakura 75, a vibrant, fruity effervescent cocktail inspired by the feeling of happiness combining Suntory Haku Vodka with Japanese yuzu citrus and Champagne, the spirit forward and verdantly fresh Japanese Julep that combines mint and citrus notes with subtle surprises of Suntory Toki whisky, shiso and yuzu or the Genmaicha Old Fashioned, a slow sipping cocktail inspired by mindfulness.

MEET THE ARTIST: TYRONE DEANS

Tyrone Deans is a chartered architect balancing fine art practice from various studios between Jamaica, Sweden and England. Born into a Jamaican family, Dean’s work is deliberately material and inquisitive, exploring concepts of identity, culture and class with every layer applied to the surface. Deans weilds mixed media purposefully, intergrating elements such as Ghanaian Kente fabric and found historical documents to drive conversation beyond formalism. As colourful as they are complex, Deans’ paintings are inviting and open-ended by nature acknowledging that history is formed by both those who have power and those without, and that both sides are of equal importance to remember and understand.
