Evan Hecox x Ace Hotel x Arkitip

Celebrating the opening of the new Ace Hotel Palm Springs, they have worked with Arkitip and artist Evan Hecox, who created a series of silk screen prints, around the topic of Palm Springs. Not only do the works hang in the rooms of the new hotel, but you are also able to buy them right off of the wall.

“Evan Hecox bases his work on his observations of urban environments and the people that inhabit them, combining the eye of a photographer with his love of drawing, painting and printmaking. Hecox spent a week photographing the Palm Springs area, and drew upon those images and experiences to create the body of work that is exhibited at Ace Hotel.

In taking on Palm Springs as subject matter he embraces a more organic side of his aesthetic, combining architectural forms with the unique desert landscape of the area. His attraction to old signage, vintage cars and other bits of fading American culture is perfectly suited to capturing Palm Springs. Through this series of prints he finds both the picturesque aspects and the seedier side of this unusual desert world.” Via Arkitip.

Hand signed and numbered, the prints are now available exclusively through the Ace Hotel Palm Springs.
