Anantara’s Roving Artist Packs His Palettes and Adds a Splash of Colour in the Maldives
20 Sep 2010
As international artist, designer and visual communicator, Christopher Hogan, packs canvasses, brushes and kaleidoscopic palettes for his visit to Anantara Maldives, budding creative guests are poised to colour their escape with his exclusive art classes.
A Bachelor of Visual Arts and a Diploma of Fine Art under his belt, Australian born Christopher has played an important role in pioneering contemporary art. His work is defined as “Harmoniously merging classically conservative design with innovative flair that allows each project to have its own identity while forming a visual narrative”, with his original paintings and sculptures gracing the world’s most discerning homes, corporate offices and five star resorts, alongside major collections and exhibitions exciting art professionals and collectors alike across the globe.
An ethos of drawing inspiration from the natural and cultural wonders of his surrounds perfectly fits the luxury experiential philosophy of the Anantara brand, whose 14 properties in the most exotic destinations of our beautiful planet invite guests to embark on meaningful journeys that are distinct to each locale.
Guests of Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas around the globe who have fortuitously timed their stay with this artistic icon’s arrival have been well rewarded. During Christopher’s time as an Artist in Residence his students have soaked up his contagious passion and learnt to fine tune their own creative talents under his expert guidance.
Now, Anantara guests travelling to the breathtaking South Malé Atoll in the Maldives are invited to do far more than revel in the world’s most captivating natural playground at Anantara Dhigu Resort & Spa, rediscover romance at Anantara Veli Resort & Spa, cherish timeless moments at Naladhu and admire boundless blue horizons at Anantara Kihavah Villas due to open in December 2010. With this quartet of Anantara Resorts in the Maldives each unfolding signature experiences, the new offering of exclusive art classes led by Christopher Hogan will deliver even richer experiences of uniquely tropical island life.
Book an exclusive art class, conjure an unforgettable scene and take home unforgettable memoirs from Anantara Maldives. Classes start at Anantara Maldives, 12th September – 12th December. You can also catch Christopher at Anantara Hua Hin Resort and Spa, Thailand from the 15th December, 2010 – 27th January, 2011 and at Anantara Phuket Villas, Thailand from the 29th January, 2011 – 19th March, 2011.
