SoH Art+Beauty Unveils Works Of Max Zorn

SoH Art+Beauty has announced its latest collaboration with Max Zorn, the supremely talented tape artist. Zorn has created several pieces inspired by the United Arab Emirates, which are now exclusively on display at the salon cum art space.

Zorn emerged as an urban artist in 2011, when he began hanging tape art on street lamps under the cover of anonymity. Zorn’s work was frequently found dotted across the street lamps of cities such as London, Madrid, Lisbon and Berlin.

Max_Zorn’s ‘Island In The Dark’ is on display at SoH Art+Beauty in Dubai.

Using a surgeon’s scalpel as a brush, Zorn creates his “tape art” by using ordinary, brown packing tape as his medium. With layering techniques, Zorn applies the tape on an acrylic glass that, when illuminated from behind, reveals contrasts and warmth that has blown away those who have seen his works.

Pushing creative boundaries even further, SoH Art+Beauty continues to establish itself as a one-of- a-kind creative hub and leader in showcasing some of the world’s most intriguing talents with the aim to inspire both it’s customers and aspiring regional artists and designers.

The brand’s first Malaysian location, on the idyllic Langkawi islands, accepted its first fortunate guests on 6 April, while a destination in the heart of the capital, dynamic Kuala Lumpur, is due to open on 1 May.

The St. Regis Langkawi Resort is the first new luxury resort to open in the past decade in the renowned 99-island archipelago. With the very highest levels of service, the destination is a masterpiece of architecture, landscape, and interior design; a paradise found and refined.

Each of the suites at the beachfront resort offers a distinctive experience, private relaxation in harmony with nature, their terraces framed by sea or rainforest views. The over-water villas are swept by the essence of the sea air, their setting carefully composed so as to be awash with sunset at the twilight of each day – a majestic display of wonder for which the islands are famed. The Iridium Spa and The St. Regis Athletic Club provide opportunities for complete wellbeing and renewal.
