Since inception, Daddy Long Legs Art Hotel has been all about celebrating Cape Town’s creative spirit. We’ve always been passionate about art and, in particular, the phenomenally talented art and artists that coming out of our beautiful Mother City. That’s why each of our hotel rooms has been uniquely themed and designed by a different local artist or designer.
This past year we had the real privilege of inviting artists to create a few new murals in the hotel. We simply couldn’t be happier with the results and wanted to share all of these amazing artworks with you.
The first mural we had commissioned in 2019 was the courtyard’s vibrant and colourful under- and overwater scene created by local graffiti artist Confrom. The marine mural – complete with friendly fishies and scuba-diving chameleon – has really livened up the courtyard space, providing a welcoming and fun inner-city sanctuary to enjoy a little respite from the bustling streets outside the hotel.
The second mural that was added to hotel was this line-up of quintessentially Capetonian characters to the hotel’s You Are Here room.
This piece was once again conceptualised and crafted by Conform, whose signature sense of humour can be seen throughout (hello African penguin! We love you!)
And lastly, the final mural artwork that was added to the Far From Home room is this wanderlust-inducing landscape masterpiece painted by talented artist Tatiana Hurn.
Hurn envisioned a wanderlust-inducing scene depicting a vast Karoo landscape, featuring vibrant aloes, a breathtaking valley vista and a winding gravel road that invites one and all to embark on a journey of discovery and delight.
