The Mandrake

One year ago today the Mandrake Hotel in London opened its doors for the first time. Below is a time-lapse of me putting the finishing touches on a piece of art I was asked to create for the interior of the hotel’s lift shaft. The project took over 2 years to complete from the initial drafting of ideas to the finished painting being installed, approx 1.7m wide X 12m tall. I cannot thank @ramipistache enough for including my work inside his incredible hotel. Thankyou Rami and happy 1st birthday @themandrakehotel

 

Below are some shots from the few days prior to the installation, here I was adding the final protective layer of varnish.

Here are a few images of the piece from inside the elevator, from the bottom of the shaft and looking down from the top of the elevator car.

I also created two additional pieces, a black and white blue print of the main elevators art and design and the other a light box for the basement level of the elevator shaft.
