Partnering up with Curate International, InterContinental Singapore will be hosting A Joie De Vivre Pop-Up: Christian Develter Salon event. Running from Friday, 24th November to Sunday, 17th December, Inspired by old-world Salons and celebrating creativity, the contemporary collaboration brings together renowned international artist, Christian Develter, the luxury spirit brand Samaroli, and leading London Cigar House, Sautter, London.

Internationally renowned artist Christian Develter is known for his radical approach to combine strong colours with bold shapes with a mixture of oils and acrylics. This results in deeply compelling pieces that capture the sense of beauty, individual strength and spirit of his protagonists through careful usage of line, lighting and geometry.

Several noteworthy art pieces include his original large-scale oil on canvas works alongside his limited-edition lithograph series and garments from his latest fashion collection with Tube Gallery, Bangkok. ‘Pakokku Chin’ from Christian’s iconic Chin Series, inspired by the intricately tattooed Chin tribal women located in the North-Western region of Myanmar, and ‘Pierce’, the latest work from Christian’s world acclaimed Cigar Series.

*Note: Christian’s works will be on display at InterContinental Singapore, The Lobby Lounge from 24th November to 17th December. Guests can scan QR codes to purchase pieces online.

The Develter x Samaroli collaboration is the commissioned work of Owner of Sautter, London – the world renowned London Cigar House known for aged and vintage Cuban cigars– who wanted to create something truly unique for true spirit enthusiasts of this world: the limited- edition and highly sought-after Develter x Samaroli x Sautter Series was conceptualised to celebrate Samaroli’s unusual flavour profiles, expressing these through the bold and iconic works of Develter.
