An Oasis Amidst Arid Sands

Raffles entrusted Artelier to curate a bespoke art collection for their new desert palace hotel: an ancient desert palace reimagined with the luxuries of today. Nestled on the Bahraini coastline, our team researched, commissioned and curated the entire collection, drawing inspiration from the lushest of greenery to the driest of deserts.

Woven Histories

Adorning the hotel’s entrance, contemporary textile wall art honours Bahrain’s rich legacy of community and trade, paying homage to weaving traditions cherished and preserved across generations.

A Modern Twist

Pieces celebrate the fusion of tradition and modernity – traditional Bahrani materials interwoven with contemporary art styles, reflecting the architectural blending of the city and its local culture.

Investing Locally

At the core of our curation is a commitment to strengthening the local Bahraini art market. We scouted emerging and established talent in the region, like artist-painter Omar Al Rashid, whose jewel-toned palette and original textural approach capture the vibrancy of the Bahrani community.

Preserving Craftsmanship

Our curators have unearthed hidden talents in timeless, sustainable crafts. Ancient heritage techniques have been meticulously preserved, from an artist specialising in lapis-lazuli pigmented ceramics to another adept in intricate gold-threaded textiles, the collection echoes generations of creative ingenuity.

A Human Touch: Figuration

Reflecting the international spectrum of guests to the hotel, Ebrahim BuSaad’s Cubist-influenced painting blends European modernism with idioms from Bahrani culture: a paisley-clad woman paired with a friendly Lutino lovebird.

Fragments from A Dilmun Past

Contemporary Bahraini artists used heritage pottery techniques to honour the artistic ingenuity of those from bygone eras. Memories of the ancient Dilmun civilisation are reawakened by fragments mimicking an archaeological excavation of precious ancient tiles.

Poetry & Calligraphy

Inspired by Bahrain’s Sumerian namesake as "the place where the sun rises," Bahraini artefacts reference the intertwinement of ancient script and modern Dilmun language.

Lost Treasures

Gold, treasured for millennia, embodies timeless opulence. This mystique spans civilisations, symbolising Bahrain's luxurious Dilmun era and Raffles' role as a destination during the Golden Age of Travel.

Contextual Art Research

Through extensive research into the hotel's context, Artelier unearths ideas for artistic themes and develops visual narratives, intelligently weaving them throughout the project in various art forms. This thematic approach offers a rich basis for a coherent and bespoke art collection.  

Concept Development & Curation

Building on our artistic research, Artelier explores artwork concepts that bring to life the visual narratives. Identifying key locations for art throughout the hotel, we ascertain optimal placement, and specially curate each area to maximise the impact of artworks in situ.
