InterContinental Singapore has partnered with Curate International to present A Joie De Vivre Pop-Up: Christan Develter Salon bringing together renowned international artist Christian Develter, luxury spirit brand Samaroli and leading London Cigar House Sautter London.
Internationally renowned artist Christian Develter is recognised for his boundary-pushing approach and radical choice to combine strong colours with bold shapes and use of a mixture of oils and acrylics. His art captures the sense of beauty, individual strength and spirit of his protagonists through careful consideration of line, lighting and geometry. Highlights include his original large-scale oil on canvas works alongside his limited-edition lithograph series and garments from his latest fashion collection with Tube Gallery, Bangkok. ‘Pakokku Chin’ from Christian’s iconic Chin Series, inspired by the intricately tattooed Chin tribal women in the North-Western region of Myanmar, and ‘Pierce’, the latest work from Christian’s world-acclaimed Cigar Series. They will be displayed at The Lobby Lounge from 24 November to 17 December and are available for sale.
The Develter x Samaroli collaboration is the commissioned work of Owner of Sautter, London – the world-renowned London Cigar House with an enviable reputation for aged and vintage Cuban cigars – who wanted to create something truly unique for true spirit enthusiasts of this world: the limited-edition and highly sought-after Develter x Samaroli x Sautter Series was conceptualised to celebrate Samaroli’s unusual flavour profiles, expressing these through the bold and iconic works of Develter. Samaroli – one of the earliest and most prestigious independent bottlers around, are guided by an unconventional flair to create truly unique liquids from the greatest Scotch whisky malts to rums. Known synonymously for their exclusivity and unmatched quality. This artistic collaboration is one not to be missed and marks the start of a 3-year collaboration with 4 limited edition releases a year.
The collectors’ bottles*, each of which only 180 bottles were produced, include:
Six sets of the limited-edition bottles retailing at S$2,188++ each, will be available to purchase at The Lobby Lounge, until 17 December (while stocks last).
