Park Hyatt New York proudly presents guests and locals with its latest art collection created by Jeffrey Okyere-Agyei, a contemporary abstract artist and bellman at the hotel.
“TeRa-NiSeR ToTeMs” is inspired by Okyere-Agyei's upbringing in Ghana, where totems are a large part of the physical symbology passed down through generations. Ghana is one of many cultures across the world that have totems embedded in their history through artifacts and storytelling. These totems possess spirits of animals, plants, and various other entities associated with their ancestors.
“I have always been intrigued by ancient mythical artifacts and have found their relevance to the human story fascinating,” said Okyere-Agyei. “TeRa-NiSeR ToTeMs has become my creative interpretation of one aspect of our human history, modern art, and its spiritual symbology as a way to connect the past to the present. With the use of resin and vibrant color pigments, each piece has a unique mystical reverence about it.”
This is Okyere-Agyei's third collection at Park Hyatt New York. Last fall, the hotel presented “EDIFICE,” an abstract interpretation of New York City’s incredible scapes and famous city skyline. In September 2019, Okyere-Agyei displayed his first Park Hyatt New York exhibit, “Future Art for the Present,” which reflected his love of movement in nature, space, and geometry. The artist’s latest installation will be featured starting September 13 and will be commemorated with a launch event in the hotel’s restaurant, The Living Room, on October 6. TeRa-NiSeR ToTeMs will be on display at Park Hyatt New York’s ground-level Avenue Gallery and in The Living Room through the end of January 2023.
“We’re thrilled to be featuring another impressive collection from Jeffrey. As his last exhibit at the hotel focused on New York City, this latest display visualizes his home country of Ghana, demonstrating both Jeffrey’s dexterity as an artist as well as the overarching theme of this city as a home for a diversity of cultures that span across the globe. Just as art is an indelible aspect of the design of Park Hyatt New York, Jeffrey is an invaluable contributor to the hotel’s character and grace,” said Laurent Ebzant, General Manager for Park Hyatt New York.
This collection features original pieces by emerging artist and Park Hyatt New York colleague, Jeffrey Okyere-Agyei and will be on view at Park Hyatt New York’s ground-level Avenue Gallery through January 2023.
