ART; NATURE’S LANGUAGE
An Alila Anji & Jayson Atienza Art Collaboration
1 June 2017
Visual artist Jayson Atienza and Marco den Ouden, General Manager of Alila Anji, have collaborated to set up an inspirational art camp for kids at Alila Anji this summer. Join us this season to celebrate your children’s creativity and the natural language of art!
Jayson Atienza is an acclaimed international artist who shuttles between Shanghai and New York City where he calls home. He has been commissioned worldwide by international brands and private collectors alike, creating custom works for the likes of Nike, Tiger Woods, Akon, RayBan, Heineken, John Legend and even the former President of the United Sates of America, Barack Obama, as well as many others.
Jayson developed his signature style at an early age, first working alongside his father, who was deaf and mute. He followed his passion and majored in graphic design and advertising at The School Of Visual Arts in New York City.
After graduation, he pursued a career in advertising, alongside his visual art. These days, his time is devoted to creating inspirational visual art around the world. His visual language is playful, colorful, energetic and fun which appeals to an international audience.
Drawing on the great outdoors at Alila Anji, Jayson Atienza will be leading his young charges in an artistic expression of the natural environment. This summer, our young guests at the resort, will have the opportunity to collaborate with Jayson in a hands-on workshop, painting three, one-of-a-kind murals, that will become permanent art installations at Alila Anji, as part of the "PLAY Alila Tree House" series.
Included in this exclusive Play Alila Program will be a signature Jayson Atienza canvas that each young artist will work on under the expert guidance of our resident artist in his art studio at Alila Anji. The children will get to take home their completed work of art, and given an opportunity to win a complimentary return visit for two "PLAY Alila" nights.
