24 Apr MEET THE HOTEL’S NEWEST ARTWORK
Daddy Long Legs loves local art and artists. That’s why we partnered with some of the best local creative talents to imbue our hotel with its distinctive flair.
At inception each artist and designer was given a hotel room to play with, coneptualise a unique theme and then design the interior of that particular room accordingly.
From the local-is-lekker afrojazz-centric Freshlyground room to the crimson case of the Emergency Room our hotel rooms are quirky and offbeat and offer a little something different from the staid old hotel room offering.
To continue our love affair with local artists, we also recently asked Conform, a talented and prominent Cape Town mural and graffiti artist, to create a fresh new mural artwork at the hotel; this time in our courtyard.
The brief was simple: brighten the space, with a scene that’s alive with energy while still retaining a characteristics Daddy Long Legs sense of humour. And we absolutely LOVE what he did with the space.
His under- and overwater scene complete with scuba diving chameleon and friendly fishy faces has been a real hit and added a bright and uplifting feel to the previously and admittedly somewhat bland courtyard area. When you’re next ambling along Long Street, pop in and check it out for yourself.
