Rowena Martinich is a Surfcoast based artist, renowned for her use of radiant colour in abstract expressionist paintings and public art. Rowena paints in a multitude of architectural contexts; embellishing foyers, commercial interiors, entire building facades, transitory spaces as well as residential interiors.
Mantra Epping is a newly built 4.5 star hotel in the growth corridor of Epping, Melbourne. Raising the bar and setting a new standard in hospitality and luxury for Mantra, the developers: Too_Build, sought out the finest locally sourced finishes, designers and artists to provide the interior fit out for this hotel. Too_Build approached the creative duo of Martinich&Carran to provide over 260 limited edition prints for the hotel rooms, and a large original foyer painting to greet visitors as they entered the building.
This project was an incredibly exciting commission for Martinich&Carran, as it exemplifies the expansive breadth and commercial application of their art practice.
