A hotel group transforms its walls into a gallery for a local artist

Sadie Clayton is well known for her copper works. She aims to channel the natural healing powers of copper to invigorate individuals, communities and the environment with every piece. Sadie explores cultural diversity in her work, hoping to bring like-minded souls together to create a sense of community and shared creativity.

Local hotel group BlackBrick partners with artists to give their work exposure in its luxury properties by turning its walls into galleries.

In a statement to the press, the group said it drew inspiration from its own team, in partnership with local furniture makers, to place art at the center of the décor.

“Murals and art play an important role in BlackBrick’s culture. These artistic elements capture parts of society and add meaning to public spaces,” said Boipelo Molwela, BlackBrick’s program curator.

“Since these works of art are so essential to improving the neighborhood, we decided to integrate this approach into our rooms. Art gives spaces a unique identity and allows us to start a conversation with our guests.

Boipelo added: “Each artist brings a unique perspective to our rooms, opening a dialogue around the experiences of South Africans and their place in the world. Not only have BlackBrick included unique artwork to create a sense of community among our guests, but we also pride ourselves on providing a platform to uplift young South African artists.
