Sake no Hana displays A Space for Art works by Daniele Davitti
Sake no Hana, the modern Japanese restaurant by the Hakkasan group, has launched a series of unique art exhibitions in collaboration with A Space For Art. Daniele Davitti launches the second exhibition at the Sake no Hana bar on St James’s Street on 25th November, where it will remain for two months. Connecting art and venues, A Space For Art seeks out remarkable spaces in London and Berlin to place the right art on the right wall.
Artist Daniele Davitti is the second artist to exhibit his work at Sake no Hana, succeeding Adam Bricusse’s samurai artwork in October. Born in 1986, Daniele studied at Bunka Fashion College in Osaka, Japan, where he received his master’s degree in Fashion Design and Illustration as well as designing his second collection. Inspired by Japan, Davitti turned his attention to fine arts and painting and studied traditional Japanese themes such as the art of ink, kimonos and Japanese style and imagery. Davitti’s portfolio includes global collaborations with Vanity Fair, the Moretti Gallery (London), La Pergola Theatre (Florence) and Arte Fiera International Fair of Contemporary Art (Bologna). In 2011 Davitti was appointed Professor of Graphic Design and the Aesthetic of Fashion at the Polimoda, becoming one of the youngest professors in Italy.
Davitti’s two-month installation will be succeeded by visual British artist David Ogle at the start of 2014, who will command St. James’s Street with an innovative illuminating sculpture in the restaurant and bar windows. Using fluorescent UV rays, Ogle’s volume of light will bring a new dimension to the space and an illusory experience to passers by.
Artist Adam Bricusse inaugurated the Sake no Hana project on 2nd September 2013 with four energetic and colourful pieces including Samurai Dusk and Hand of Faith, that were displayed in Sake no Hana.
All artworks displayed by A Space for Art over the forthcoming months will be available for purchase.
Didier Souillat, Executive Vice President of Restaurants for the Hakkasan group says: “We are delighted to partner with A Space For Art and are very proud to highlight and support the area’s affiliation with the art world. It’s a thrilling project to be involved in and we are very excited to offer Sake no Hana as a space to showcase such respected, talented and avant-garde artists for the months ahead.”
Located on St James’s Street, Sake no Hana is situated in the heart of Mayfair amongst London’s well-established art galleries and auction houses.
