the art resort offers a unique approach to connect groundbreaking contemporary art with inspiring spaces, architecture and excellent design. A new generation of creatives has changed the definition of what we label as "fine art" and transformed the landscape of hotels and resorts into a new realm that emphasizes the experience. By inviting influential artists from all fields of new media and art to outstanding resorts and venues we honor their impact on art, design and architecture while offering a fresh view on both, the art and it´s surrounding.
Beside our special editions featuring one artist at a time we will serve you assorted tidbits from all flavors on a daily base. Enjoy
During August 2010 we accompanied Ms. Julia Murakami to some of the finest resorts on Koh Samui. This is the first chapter of Murakami Samui, a special edition of the art resort, bringing together fine art and fine places. The hosting venues offered Ms. Murakami the chance to work on her ongoing project, The Japanese Guerilla Paparazzi and we tried to cover both, the participating resorts and the artistic work in progress. More pictures will be added over time before we go back for chapter 2.
We hope you enjoy this travelogue in progress as much as we did making it.
