It might seem an unlikely mix, but top New York graffiti artist, Alec Monopoly has fused his skills and his paint cans to the luxurious surroundings of the W Bali’s W Lounge and WOO Bar. But when you think of W’s reputation for breaking new DJs, show-casing upcoming designers and generally adding an edge to the five star experience then it all begins to make sense.
The partnership started in Thailand when Monopoly went out to W Koh Samui at the beginning of this year. His work at the W retreat, shown above in the image, gave a new dimension to the hotel and was a huge hit with its guests and so the natural progression was to take the unidentified artist to W Bali to help celebrate the hotel’s second anniversary.
W Bali is situated in the Seminyak area of the traditional Indonesian island, known for its laid back atmosphere during the day and party by night. The hotel is just two years old and combines classic Balinese tradition with a 24hr spa, incredible restaurants and a year-round calendar of amazing artists, designers and musicians – both international and local.
