Gallery Hoteles recently imagined an alternative way of promoting young artists. In order to contribute to fostering arts and culture, the hotel group decided to set up collaborations by displaying young artists’ work on their hotels’ bathroom products and cosmetics.
This project started in early 2015. For the first edition of the Talent Gallery, the group selected a young brand, Moniquilla, created in 2010 by Monica Munoz, a Spanish graphic designer. Graduated in Fine Arts from the University of Salamanca, she has worked in advertising agencies, for national and international museums and for several brands such as Fun & Basics, Urban Outfitters and Zara Home. She is today creating her own prints and patterns made out of watercolours, markers or crayons, and displayed on objects and textiles.
For the Talent Gallery, Gallery Hoteles chooses young artists that are starting their careers, to help promote them to the hotel’s clients. No specific style is required to be chosen, but for the first edition, they looked for an abstract colourful style for the set of bath amenities.
This initiative is in line with Gallery Hoteles DNA, renowned for its commitment to innovation and environment and for its warm hospitality. Created in 1996, the hotel group Gallery Hoteles currently manages two hotels in Spain, the Gallery Hotel Barcelona and the Hotel Molina Lario in Malaga.
The Gallery Hotel, boutique hotel (110 rooms) located in the heart of Barcelona, is the ideal location for a break in Barcelona, next to Paseo de Gracia and la Pedrera. This 4-star hotel offers spacious and bright rooms that feel like home. The hotel has a wide range of dining options, from its El Café del Gallery restaurant serving Mediterranean innovative dishes, to the Bar Gallery Space and its tapas or the rooftop terrace The Top, offering a large choice of cocktails and grills.
Hotel Molina Lario, situated in the centre of Malaga is also a 4-star hotel, exceptionally positioned right opposite the Malaga Cathedral, not far from the Picasso Museum and the old pedestrian city centre. The hotels’ building is composed of two 19th century renovated buildings and one brand new, adding to the uniqueness of the 103-rooms hotel. The 6 functions rooms of the hotel are ideal for meetings or private events, and its El Café de Bolsa Restaurant & Bar perfect to enjoy top-quality cooking along with fine wines.
Those two hotels are also part of the Warwick International Hotels’ Collection. Founded in 1980 with the purchase of the Warwick New York Hotel, the group is currently present on 5 continents, with more than 50 prestigious Hotels and Resorts worldwide, with exceptional locations. Today, the group is still expanding and has recently opened 2 all-inclusive resorts in Cuba, while one is scheduled to open in the Bahamas in 2016.
