Rosewood San Miguel de Allende

Reminiscent of a grand Mexican hacienda, Rosewood San Miguel de Allende pays tribute to the town’s history with Spanish colonial furnishings, beautiful local art, and charming garden patios.

Rooms are luxuriously appointed and decorated in rich traditional colors, while the stately suites have either wonderful outdoor lounge areas or glorious rooftop patios.

Dining at the hotel is something to write home about, ranging from innovative Mexican cuisine in stylish surroundings to tasty globally inspired tapas up on the roof. Sense, A Rosewood Spa, offers a variety of pools, a state-of-the-art gym, and a selection of luxurious treatments based on ancient Mexican healing traditions.

Paintings by Leanne Thomas

Leanne was a former Art Director working in the cosmetics and fashion industry. She studied oil painting technique at The Charlie Sheard Studio School in Redfern, lives and works in Sydney, Australia, as a practising artist.

My aesthetics and sensibilities stem from a love of classical art, nature and the sublime. This combined with an interest in the relationship between light and shadow, bright and dark, blur and detail, near and far is what defines my work. Ultimately, I am committed to creating art that exudes light, life and hope in a way that resonates with every viewer.

“Blindness Light” and Other Works from Javier Martin

Javier Martín is a visual artist who has developed most of his works in painting & in sculpture. He uses fashion portraits often taken by him to compose his artwork. Martin also uses a mix- ture of techniques that involve digital prints as part of his trademark.

As a self educated artist, he started to paint at young age & at the very premature age of 7, In 1994 Martin won the CAJA Madrid for Javier Martín young artist award. Two decades later Martin has re- ached an important statute & recognition in the art world by making individual & collective ex- hibitions in Europe, Asia, United Sates & Latin America.

Martin is mostly recognized by his works with pictures which highlight the blindness his mo- dels. The esthetic beauty of the works acquires a special value as a storyteller trying to set a point about how society judges without looking any further.

Another of his most famous art pieces is his Louis Vuitton Rifles. These particular art pieces are all made from the fabric of de-cosntructed Louis Vuitton bags. The result: guns, grenades and AK- 47’s. Leaving a strong message about the modern cult to a specific dreamy object, a bag transformed into a weapon or a weapon transformed into a bag.
