NEW YORK (Jan. 23, 2017) – The Manhattan hotel NoMo SoHo has acquired two fiberglass and stainless steel sculptures from Ukrainian artist Lina Condes’ “Bachelor in Miami” series, “Bagel” and “Emoji #2.” The structures sit approximately three feet wide and seven feet tall, and are now presented in the hotel lobby and in its signature restaurant, NoMo Kitchen. The sculptures enrich the hotel’s current art collection, and demonstrate NoMo SoHo’s commitment to its revolving art project, which will continually rotate iconic art throughout the property.

The unveiling of “Bagel” and “Emoji #2” represent the culture that visitors will experience at NoMo. SoHo is a neighborhood infused with creativity, evocative expression and artistic dedication. The “Bachelor in Miami” pieces are another testament to NoMo’s representation of all those elements through its art, photography and fashion-inspired design.

Awarded the “2016 Best of International Emerging Artist” in Dubai, Lina Condes is a leading figure in the contemporary art world. Her “Bachelor in Miami” sculpture series exhibits her thematic interest in bright color, hysterical subject matter, chameleon paint and stick men, such as in “Bagel” and “Emoji #2.”

NoMo SoHo has also just acquired Robert Indiana’s monumental contemporary sculpture “SEVEN,” now showcased at the entrance to the hotel. A signature piece within Indiana’s larger series of works “NUMBERS ONE through ZERO,” the steel sculpture weighs approximately 3,000 pounds and stands eight feet tall. The work represents Indiana’s long-held fascination with the power of numbers, which he emphasizes by saying, “Each one is loaded with multiple references and significances.”

The sculpture installations follow JGoldcrown’s “Bleeding Hearts” mural displayed on the interior of NoMo Kitchen. The “Lovewall” comprises a series of colorful, dripping (or bleeding) hearts and has become a recognized backdrop of social media sharing. JGoldcrown is known internationally for his “Bleeding Hearts” murals, which can be found in New York, California, Texas, Miami and Chicago.

Guests visiting NoMo SoHo hotel and NoMo SoHo Kitchen will also experience a variety of other featured art and photography, including:

  • Lobby wall art by Marilyn Minter, featuring her “Kicksilver” design, that is based on a composite photograph highlighting a model’s stiletto splashing in a puddle of silver-tined vodka.
  • Lobby photography by Wolfgang Wesener presenting icons of inspiration, that include noteworthy artists Andy Warhol, Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquait.
