Tyga came out to join his friend, New York City-based graffiti artist, Alec Monopoly at his art installation unveiling at the Beverly Hills Hotel in California last night, November 4. The "Alec x Beverly Hills Hotel" capsule collection us the luxury hotel's first ever artist collab and on-site art installation. Keep reading to see more details.
The installation will be at the Beverly Hills Hotel starting on November 4 and can be viewed until its closing on December 4.
The 32-year-old will be inserting large sculptures of his famed artwork of cartoon characters like Richie Rich and Monopoly Man. The figures were created to complement the hotel’s well-known pink and green decor.
Along with the hotel's changing graffiti interior design, Alec will also be launching his "Art Toy" collection. The line will include a series of limited-edition skateboard decks, Nick Fouqet top hats, and a Modernica fiberglass chair.
The collection is priced at a range from $500 to $2,000. Alec talked to Haute Living on why he picked the iconic hotel for his installation. "The hotel truly inspired me with its beautiful colors and landscape … it’s honestly a sanctuary of peace and happiness! I created my first work on canvas inspired by the hotel 3 years ago..."
Alec is known for his urban-style artwork and the way that in ever photo he takes, he always covers his mouth with his hand or with a mask. This creates an air of mystery surrounding the artist's real identity. Tyga has been a long-time BFFs with Alec and they were spotted together earlier this year at Cannes Film Festival.
