From Beijing to 50 Bowery: Introducing Artist Dake Wong

Opening this spring, Hotel 50 Bowery is heavily inspired by the cultural crossroads of its location. Centered at the convergence of New York City’s most vibrant neighborhoods where Chinatown meets the Lower East Side, Little Italy, SoHo, and Brooklyn, the hotel is creating an immersive experience reflective of this melting pot and is focused on bringing together a creative community to honor it.

To help with this mission, the hotel has partnered with nAscent Art to incorporate artwork into the hotel’s spaces by talented emerging artists like Dake Wong, a Beijing-based oil painter and graffiti artist who has been creating art since he was a child. nAscent Art worked with Hotel 50 Bowery’s design team and Dake to incorporate his bold artworks at a large scale throughout the corridors of the new hotel.

Catch a glimpse of Dake at work on some past and current projects – including a sneak peek at some of the art featured in the hotel!
