ARTIST in HOTEL No.3 竹之内直記 和紙の部屋(at Park Hotel Tokyo)

Park Hotel Tokyo plans to add nine Artist Rooms per year over the next three years to create an entire Artist Floor, totaling 31 rooms, as part of its Artist in Hotel project, an adaptation of the well-known "Artist-In-Residence" program in a hotel setting.
In the project, the hotel transforms standard guest rooms into Artist Rooms encapsulating their creators' passions and views of the world, with the artists painting on walls and decorating the rooms with their original paintings or art objects based on the inspiration they obtained while staying at the hotel.
Through this project the hotel endeavors to reach out to foreign guests who are interested in Japanese aesthetics and arts in order to help enhance their cultural experiences during their stay in Japan. It offers visitors an unforgettable opportunity to enjoy art from the comfort of their hotel room.

Artist Room Washi
The artist Naoki Takenouchi stayed at the hotel from the 14th of November to the 30th of November, 2013, and created works on the theme, Washi or, Japanese Paper.
He says: "Japanese paper, which lends itself to so many forms of expression, is a perfect material for me to work with.
Using the unique features of Japanese paper, passed down to us from ancient Japan, I stuck it on the walls, or printed on it with woodblocks and stuck those papers on the walls, or twirled it around and around to make lamp shades. I wanted to create an amusing room and with 108 demi-gods arranged to symbolize the famed Japanese God of Wind and God of Thunder, I hope I have achieved this."
