From June until August 2021, The Langham, Hong Kong, is honoured to present a charity exhibition titled It’s All In The Art in the hotel lobby, Paint. Eat. Sip. in Artesian, and a Paint and Stay staycation package, featuring Hong Kong-based Italian artist, Francesco Lietti.
According to Marcel Holman, the managing director of The Langham, Hong Kong, “Truly an art gallery to stay in, The Langham, Hong Kong is home to an impressive lineup of artworks. At The Langham, we are very passionate about art, and strive to provide an aesthetically stimulating experience for our guests. Combining this passion and our commitment to giving back to the local community, we are delighted to launch the It’s All In The Art exhibition, Paint. Eat. Sip and a staycation package together with Francesco Lietti”.
Lietti will be donating 20% of the proceeds from the paintings sold during this exhibition to Matilda’s Children Foundation, while The Langham, Hong Kong will be auctioning the completed collaborative art piece from the Paint. Eat. Sip sessions, guided by Lietti and donating the proceeds to the same local charity. Matilda’s Children Foundation exists to provide life changing surgeries at no cost to underprivileged children in desperate need of treatment and have no other means of receiving care, around Southeast Asia.
This charity exhibition by The Langham, Hong Kong follows their recent 20 March International Day of Happiness community initiative, where the hotel team showed their support for healthcare professionals by donating 125 sets of the brand’s signature afternoon tea sets to the staff working at COVID-19 testing around its neighbourhood in Kowloon.
Holman added, “The Langham, Hong Kong has won over many guests with its superb location; being strategically located in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui and within a stone’s throw away from the famous Victoria harbour. For our guests and for myself, the iconic harbour skyline continues to be absolutely mesmerising. We are honoured to be partnering with Francesco, who is both a visionary and a creative maven, and very well-known for his skyline paintings”.
In It’s All In The Art, Lietti shows a collection of his painted scenes from all over Asia. Through the use of striking colours, the artist captures the essence of the famous Hong Kong harbour skyline and other city skylines, and makes it his own.
According to Lietti, “I have been living in Hong Kong for almost 16 years and this beautiful city is my home now. This partnership with The Langham to contribute to those in need is a very rewarding opportunity! I am thrilled to be working with Marcel and his team, and am really looking forward to painting another skyline piece, collaboratively with the hotel guests”.
“I recall my arrival in Asia in 2005 as a fascinating moment filled with vibrancy, energy, and beauty of its people, landscapes, and cityscapes. My work here celebrates the beauty and the dynamics of Hong Kong and the places that I have travelled to. I would like to somehow take the viewer to these places and make them feel the same emotions that I experienced,” he added.
Inspired by travel and discovery, he brings his views onto the canvas through different in-depth stages of elements, layers and colours, and are rendered in bold and highly saturated hues.
