The Grand Hyatt Dubai will celebrate its first anniversary in April with the work of British art wunderkid Sacha Jafri.
Described as Britain’s hottest young painter, Jafri has achieved international recognition for his ‘Magical Realism’. He will display his original collection at the hotel’s lobby area in an exhibition titled Bridging the Gap in early April.
Jafri will also start a two-week residency at the hotel’s outdoor lawn where he will be painting a commissioned canvas to present to the hotel as a birthday gift. This is a rare opportunity for the public to watch a masterpiece unfold.
Jafri’s many big-ticket clients include Madonna, Kevin Spacey, the Sultan of Brunei and Prince William. Some of his work has fetched as much as US$1.3 million at auction.
The 674-room Grand Hyatt Dubai opened in March 2003 and is Dubai’s premier city conference resort. It has 14 restaurants and bars, a state-of-the-art convention centre capable of facilitating up to 2,000 delegates. Set within 37 acres of landscaped grounds, the Grand Spa offers a wealth of luxury resort facilities.
