From January to April 2020, we will be exhibiting the incredible Sophie Tea’s artwork on our first floor. Sophie Tea is a young artist who has broken the traditional gallery route and instead made her name independently on social media.
She started her journey painting colourful animals which gained unprecedented popularity in only the first year of working as a full-time artist. Sophie then moved onto abstract paintings. She launched this transition by releasing an original abstract on her Instagram every day for sale. The first person who commented ‘me’ would purchase the painting. She did this for 100 days and by the last day she had over 100 comments and messages of people wanting one.
At the end of 2019, Sophie and her team flew out to Bali to get some inspiration for her latest collection. During this time, she asked her followers on social media to be her muse and ‘send nudes’ – fast forward a couple of hours and she was inundated with images of real women – some pregnant, some who have suffered from body issues, women who are battling breast cancer and had mastectomies.
Sophie states it has been the most powerful and humbling period of her career so far and she’s so glad to be spreading such an important body confidence message and this is why we’re so proud to be exhibiting this collection at South Place Hotel.
Head to our first floor and enjoy Sophies collection and afterwards why not head to our Mystical Garden and enjoy a St-Germain cocktail.
