The artistic partnership with Kostar reflects SO/ Bangkok’s hallmark of blending art and hospitality, restyling the hotel interiors with thought-provoking art. Although the acclaimed urban artist Kostar was born in the 1970s in Paris, he has been based in and inspired by many different cities. Creative and inventive, Kostar experiments with a myriad of surfaces and textures to redefine urban art and graffiti. With a fun dose of humor and color, Kostar is best known for creating new dimensions, especially through artistic hybrids of two contrasting concepts.

Forward-thinking and audacious —similar to SO/ Bangkok’s persona — Kostar believes that the sky is barely the limit. He brought his latest sculptural figure Mr Balloon to 40-km high in outer space with a camera to witness it all. Made with fiberglass and chromium on stainless steel, Mr Balloon is a symbol of hope and liberty. The face of the character features a giant eye, signifying Mr Balloon and its artist’s global vision. And yet, his posture conveys fragility and perfect equilibrium.

SO/ Bangkok is thrilled to display a curated collection of Kostar’s art and Mr Balloon sculptures at the park lobby of the hotel. After a speech of our fave General Manager Jean-Francois Brun, tasty canapés and stylish sips will be passed around. SO/ invites local residents and global travelers to explore the world of art through the lens of Mr Balloon.
