Art Series Hotel Group’s Eigth Property the Chen To Open 22nd November

October 26, 2017 Hotel Openings No Comments Email Email

Art Series Hotel Group will open their eighth art inspired hotel on November 22nd in the burgeoning Melbourne suburb of Box Hill. Named after and inspired by Chinese Australian artist Zhong Chen, the hotel will reflect his fun and relaxed persona and be dedicated to the ‘Art of Joyful Journeys’. The Chen will reflect and celebrate the ethnic diversity of Box Hill, with Chen’s bold art representing his own transcultural identity.

Chen arrived in Adelaide from China at the age of eighteen. Born in Zhongshan, Chen’s first taste of art was through the lens of traditional Chinese calligraphy and from there his range of influences span cultural histories from China, Australia, Germany, USA and the UK. In his art we see a playful, gestural style using watercolour, oil and acrylic to create bold black outlines that provide a marked contrast to the softer pastel tones that are unevenly absorbed through the paper. His bold art marries Western expressions with Chinese traditions as he negotiates his mixed heritage portraying childhood memories and Chinese pop culture as his inspiration.

Providing a contemporary accommodation in Melbourne’s flourishing Box Hill, The Chen has been crafted with the unique art inspired touch points that Art Series Hotels are celebrated for. Featuring 100 intelligently designed hotel suites in muted grey tones with pops of pastel pinks and blues that are all complemented with Chen’s vibrant Digital Archival Fine Art Editions.

The Chen features spectacular views of Melbourne’s CBD and surrounding suburbs from the impressive rooftop pool and entertainment deck, with multiple onsite restaurants and cafes set to open later this year that will include Melbourne’s best Yum Cha. The property will also feature a fully equipped state-of-the-art gymnasium, events centre and car park, with Trams at the doorstep ready to whisk guests away to explore Melbourne city.

Zhong Chen Says; “I have lived and worked in Box Hill for nearly a decade and I am really proud of this community and its emergence as a powerful fringe suburb of Melbourne. To have an Art Series Hotel open in my name is truly an honor. I love the hotel’s location so much I even purchased an apartment in the same complex and I am looking forward to seeing guests engage with the hotel and my art.”

The Chen will encapsulate all of the Art Series Hotel Group’s signature amenities including their Be-spoke Art Series Signature bedding, EVO bathroom amenities, luxe minibar, renowned art tours, dedicated art channels, artist documentaries and art libraries. Art Series branded Smart Cars and Lekker bicycles will also be available for guests to hire to explore the area and further afield.
