A variety of art pieces and installations will consume The National Hotel. The hotel's Art Deco interior and exterior spaces will be decorated with Fantone's signature artwork, including the pool and restaurant, and one of the hotel's Luxury Cabana Suites.
Fantone's career transcends art beginning with her creative journey as a model, actress, and author. She has been featured in notable films such as "Big Eyes" directed by Tim Burton and "My Name is Sandy," which screened at the Cannes Film Festival. Many of the world's biggest celebrities including Muhammad Ali, Celine Dion and the Kardashians have commissioned pieces of Fantone's multi-hued acrylic portraits reminiscent of the pop art movement.
Her intricate and colorful paintings are showcased in some of the world's most prestigious galleries and private collections. Elisabetta's art reached new heights, literally, with one of her largest creations; a mural she painted for Art Basel in 2015. The piece, titled 'Crimes Against Art' features the portraits of Jean-Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol posing for their fictional mug shots. The year before, Elisabetta painted the widely revered mural titled 'The Affair", featuring the portraits of the Kennedys and Marilyn Monroe. 'The Affair' was later featured in a Bacardi commercial. In conjunction with Art Basel 2016, she exhibited her latest collection, "Imaginibus," in the Wynwood Arts District, and revealed her exclusively designed CORUM "Bubble" watch.
Fantone's new exhibition and floor-to-ceiling decorations will be open to the public starting during Art Basel, December 7-10th, 2017.
