Hon is a Las Vegas-based artist with a background in commercial photography for celebrities, professional athletes, advertising campaigns and more. His work is inspired by the idea that art has a different outlook depending on where one stands to view it.
Located in the Delano lobby, the collection’s five pieces appear to be digitally composed art, but upon closer inspection guests will discover that the works are comprised of the female figure; 500 to be exact. Utilizing photographs with 12 – 15 women at a time, Hon spent more than 700 hours contorting and layering 500 bodies into each remarkable piece of art.
Final touches to Hon’s awe-inspiring pieces include highlighting a specific portion of each image with a calligraphy pen to add an unexpected element. The intricate details of each photo create the illusion of multiple dimensions.
“‘SPEKTIVE’ fits right into our resort experience because it embraces the unexpected and subtle elements of art and design,” said Matthew Chilton, general manager of Delano. “We are excited to feature this chic, yet intriguing style of work by an incredible local artist.”
This exhibit is on view now through December.
