The Gatrooms Hotels art galleries

Gatrooms, the chain behind the Gat Point Charlie Hotel in Berlin and the Gat Rossio Hotel in Lisbon, stands apart for being an integral part of the cultural offer in its home cities. It holds four exhibitions a year in each of the two hotels, among other events such as workshops and artistic performances.

This autumn, we have the privilege of exhibiting the work of well-known international artists who draw on internal reflection and use different techniques to push the boundaries of art. The exhibitions will run from September to November.

 

In Berlin, the “Picatsso” exhibition by Sol Felpeto.
See the vernissage pictures

Venezuela-born Sol Felpeto is a multicultural artist who, in her own words, “seeks to translate art into something immediately catchy, making a connection between the known and the new to create emotions”. In this respect, and in her desire to “rewrite history using animals”, Felpeto has adapted Picasso’s masterpieces using her unique Pop Artoons style, replacing the classic protagonists with cats.

In Lisbon, “The Art of (de)construction” by artist Marco Laborda.
See the vernissage pictures

Artist Marco Laborda hails from Barcelona and, as he himself explains, wears “several hats, all of which tilt towards art.” Fascinated with portraiture, collage is his main form of artistic expression, in which “he cuts and pastes vivid elements to produce portraits that are reminiscent of Francis Bacon’s disfigured characters or Francisco de Goya’s realistic portraits”.

The best thing about an art gallery being in a hotel is that it is open to the public every day of the week:
Gat Point Charlie Hotel: Mauerstraße 81-82, 10117 Berlin
Gat Rossio Hotel: R. do Jardim do Regedor 27-35, 1150-193 Lisbon.

 

A game of (de)construction – Art Exhibition

We are glad to present the latest art exhibition at Gat Rossio Hotel called ‘A game of deconstruction’, a series of collages by the artist Marco Laborda.

 “I like to think these collages convey the complexity of the human being. The edges, the emptiness and the constant movement we experience. We live in a state of constant alteration, which I feel inside me. Today I am not the same as yesterday, I am evolving and I am involutive in other cases” explains the author.

Laborda combines his work as creative director of Neurads with projects such as ‘Altered’, the design of the posters of the joint tour of the poet Elvira Sastre and singer Andrés Suárez or the editorial for the Neo2 magazine entitled “Down the Rabbit Hole”.

Cutting and pasting living elements, Marco has managed to produce striking stories. “The collage contains this peculiarity: you can play with the faces and modify them. I like to create incomplete figures, under construction”. This reflection has given birth to the present exhibition. “In a world with a lot of noise and distractions, art allows me to be alone, just by cutting photographs and playing with them”. Now is the time to share them.

The inauguration will take place on September 13 at 7:00 p.m. at the Hotel Gat Rossio (R. do Jardim do Regedor 27) and it will be followed by the vernissage cocktail.

The exhibition will remain in the heart of the Portuguese capital for three months.

Picatsso “art exhibition”

Gat Point Charlie hotel in Berlin will host on August 17 an art exhibition, which is the most appropriate of all since it consists of works where the protagonists are cats! And to make it even more interesting, they are inspired by the works of Pablo Picasso.
All this is done by the artist Sol Felpeto, who will be in the opening day and with whom you will be able to chat amidst drinks and snacks.



Sol Felpeto (1990) is a multicultural artist born in Venezuela. She spent her childhood and adolescence between Buenos Aires and Madrid and sporadically living in other countries with her family. In Argentina, she began her studies in the? veterinary medicine school but, after three years, she decided to follow her creative rush and, at the age of 21, she moved for good to Spain and studied Fashion and Creative Direction at European Institute of Design (IED). Those four years of creative studies led to developing herself as an illustrator and painter within her style called «Poop Arttoons», a mixture of art, humour, and animals. She graduated in June 2016 and immediately participated in her very first exhibition along with other artists of the new generation. This is when she takes the first step towards art as a profession.

Time: 7 pm
