Park Hyatt New York unveiled its latest rotating art exhibition, and it’s by contemporary abstract artist and hotel bellman of eight years, Jeffrey Okyere-Agyei. This marks his third exhibit at the hotel.
“In the spirit of Hyatt’s commitment to caring for others so they can be their best, we’re thrilled to feature another impressive collection from Jeffrey and simultaneously offer guests and locals a new, thought-provoking art experience,” said Kimberly Dixon, interim general manager, Park Hyatt New York. “Demonstrating Jeffrey’s dexterity as an artist as well as the destination of New York City as a melting pot for diverse cultures from around the world, it’s only fitting that his last exhibit focused on New York City, and this one visualizes his home country of Ghana. Just as renowned art is an indelible aspect of Park Hyatt New York’s design and ambiance, Jeffrey is an invaluable contributor to the hotel’s exceptional service and enriching experiences.”
Titled “TeRa-NiSeR ToTeMs”, the exhibit looks to Okyere-Agyei’s upbringing for inspiration. In Ghana, his birthplace, totems are honored as fixtures of the culture, typically possessing the spirit of animals, plants and entities associated with ancestors.
“I have always been intrigued by ancient mythical artifacts and have found their relevance to the human story fascinating,” said Okyere-Agyei. “’TeRa-NiSeR ToTeMs’ has become my creative interpretation of one aspect of our human history – modern art – and its spiritual symbology as a way to connect the past to the present. With the use of resin and vibrant color pigments, each piece has a unique mystical reverence about it to draw in today’s discerning traveler.”
The exhibit is currently on display at Park Hyatt New York’s ground-level Avenue Gallery and in The Living Room, through December.
