So after I had already done mural work for Innside Manchester and Innside Hamburg Hafen I started looking at other Innside by Melia hotels to approach re work. One that stood out massively was Innside New York Nomad so I gave them an email and was really excited when they emailed back and said that they wanted to work with me.
We spoke about artwork for a few different areas for the hotel but in the end we settled on a digital design that would be printed onto vinyl and would go on all four walls of the four lifts in the hotel creating an immersive map experience.
I received a brief from them of places that they wanted to go onto the map and I got to work. New York is one of my favourite cities to draw, the shape of it makes it quite difficult but there are just so many iconic landmarks and fun places to draw that it is always going to look good.
I finished the map got it digitised and send over to them. In late 2017 I got the first pictures of the map printed onto the walls of the lifts and was blown away with how it looked.
I was able to visit the hotel in 2018 and see if for myself, whilst I was there I did a second mural in the hotel. This was of the Chelsea area of Manhattan and is in one of their meeting rooms.
