PERTH HOTEL CELEBRATES STREET ART

Accor has announced the latest addition to its Art Series boutique hotel group in Australia.

The Adnate Perth will be dedicated to street art, and feature one of the world’s tallest murals, at 27 storeys. It’s set to open in October.

The mural will be painted by spray paint artist Matt Adnate, whose works portraying Indigenous people have been displayed around the world. The artwork will sit alongside two other major pieces: a 50m long ‘Laneway Mural’, featuring multiple portraits from Adnate and a local Indigenous artist; and an interior ‘Staircase Mural’.

“I see this hotel as a beautiful canvas to tell a story about Perth’s cultural and community connection through portraiture and traditional elements,” Matt said. “My Mega Mural will feature three large-scale portraits. It will represent the past through the cultural representation in the subject’s dressing elements, the present with contemporary faces, and the future as the subjects are the youth of today.”

Simon McGrath, Accor’s Chief Operating Officer for the Pacific, predicted The Adnate will become an iconic landmark in Perth’s CBD. “This hotel heralds the arrival of the Art Series brand in Western Australia and demonstrates our commitment to growing this iconic Australian hotel brand – Australia’s only boutique hotel brand creating art inspired experiences for guests.”
