Live Performance Painting at Raffles Dubai

This March, Raffles Dubai welcomes Canadian fine artist Giselle Denis for a performance painting residency at the hotel. Giselle will be creating her nature-inspired artwork live for hotel guests from Wednesday 1 March to Friday 17 March in Raffles Salon, Solo Italian Restaurant & Bar, as well as Raffles Garden, providing an artistic twist to the weekly Friday brunch.

Giselle brings her unique performance painting to Dubai for the first time, following live painting at luxury hotels in Canada including the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald in Edmonton, Fairmont Palliser Hotel in Calgary and the world famous Fairmont Banff Springs in the Canadian Rockies. Giselle paints scenes of nature, inspired by landscapes, forests and flowers, using bright, bold colours and textures. Her paintings have reached up to $50,000 at auction.

Ayman Gharib, General Manger at Raffles Dubai said: “We are delighted to welcome Giselle to Raffles and we know her performance painting will be an engaging and special addition to the experience of our guests. We are very excited to see the artwork she will create during her residency, and trust that both the exquisite design of our hotel and the dynamic city of Dubai will provide great inspiration.”

Giselle Denis added: “I am delighted to have the opportunity to visit Dubai and to paint for the guests of Raffles hotel. To share my creative process in a live setting is a true joy. My approach to painting is quick and intuitive which I know people will enjoy watching. I look forward to the inspiration I will gather from the beauty of my surroundings in Dubai!”
