During my first days as Artist in Residence for The May Fair Hotel, I couldn’t help but notice the beautiful clothes and hats the doormen wore. I felt that they were unaware of their grace, elegance and impeccable manners which set them apart from any other hotel in London.
This Artwork is of Pete, The Doorman, who has all these astonishing qualities and an incredible style which drew me to him.
Situated in the heart of the Mayfair village, The May Fair Hotel has been a by-word for artistry and elegance since the twenties. To celebrate its status as the official hotel partner for Art13 London; London’s most exciting new art fair (Olympia Grand Hall, 1-3 March 2013 http://www.artfairslondon.com), the luxury hotel appointed its very first Artist in Residence.
Marc McGreevy was in residence at The May Fair Hotel on 1-3 March 2013. Guests had the opportunity to take their own exclusive art-work home with them – see some of the stunning results below.
