The Chen

Vision Magazine - - Des­ti­na­tions -

Named af­ter and in­spired by the Chi­nese Aus­tralian artist, Zhong Chen. The Chen is the newest ad­di­tion to the Art Series Ho­tels. It is lo­cated near the shop­ping district of the vi­brant mul­ti­cul­tural sub­urb of Box Hill, where the artist him­self has resided for over a decade. Chen be­lieves that it is im­por­tant to merge his own Asian tra­di­tions with Western in­flu­ences. This multi-lay­ered de­sign it brings about the per­son­alised and unique artistry of The Chen.

It is not merely enough to just present Western paint­ings in the ho­tel col­lec­tion, “the com­bi­na­tion of us­ing Chi­nese cal­lig­ra­phy and wa­ter­colour pro­duces an artis­tic ef­fect that is be­yond imag­i­na­tion,” Chen ex­plained, “a fu­sion of Chi­nese tra­di­tions with Western ex­pres­sions is an art piece that could be un­der­stood by peo­ple from both cul­tural back­grounds.”

The Chen is a lux­ury bou­tique ho­tel that hosts over 100 self con­tained open-planned and apart­ment style suites, rooftop pool with sun­deck, gym­na­sium, plus con­fer­ence and event fa­cil­i­ties. The guest ex­pe­ri­ence is fur­ther com­ple­mented by an abun­dance of Chen’s art­works, in­house art li­braries and a ded­i­cated art chan­nel.
