Our on demand art services range from a one-time workshop session, lasting only a few hours, to a series of activities spread over multiple weeks. We can host our activities at our venue or can alternatively provide our services at your premises (including multiple branches at the same time). Whether you are looking for a corporate event, a creative workshop, or creative branding ideas, we can provide the best package to enhance your marketing and PR strategies through art.
Our experience and quality of service are the fruits of numerous successful collaborations with leading institutions and enterprises. Partners we worked with include BBC Worldwide, SKY TV, ITV, Selfridges & Co., HSBC, the Royal Academy of Arts, L’Oréal, Harrods, Giorgio Armani, Sisley, Givenchy, the University of Birmingham, Estée Lauder and many more.
Giorgio Armani commissioned Sunny Art Centre to launch one of their Chinese inspired products. Chinese style paintings from our artists were selected to be printed on Armani packaging and complimentary items. Designated showrooms in Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and Westfield’s displayed the original works painted by our artists. Through this opportunity, we broadened people’s appreciation and understanding of Chinese culture outside of mainstream galleries and museums. Moreover, we enhanced the marketing and branding strategies following the Oriental theme chosen by the fashion designer for the collection.
A series of limited edition fragrance bottles were created by our Chinese painters for Givenchy’s launch of their new collection of perfumes. The products were displayed on the ground floor at Harrods and the event has been featured by Givenchy's social media. The intricately handcrafted designs were based on the concepts behind the fragrances and their main Chinese floral ingredients. Ten different designs were created for a series of ten perfumes.
Sunny Art Centre was asked by Selfridges to design and launch a new shopping experience for their customers during the Chinese New Year (2015, 16 and 17). Our Chinese painters produced unique and delicate paintings on cards to accompany the customers’ in-store and/or online purchases. Selfridges was keen to emphasise the importance of the handcrafted art piece and of Chinese contemporary art in modern culture, and our work definitely enabled them to achieve their goal. It was a meaningful experience in which Classical Chinese painting was creatively combined with the concept of gift-giving.
We organised several interactive demonstrations and workshop for HSBC local branches across the UK to promote Chinese art and culture. Participants had the opportunity to showcase their artistic talent and creativity and learn from our Chinese artists. Our programme enabled clients to produce a unique, handcrafted, festive art piece and to bring it home along with a written Chinese blessing made by our calligraphy artists. Customer interaction was at the foundation of this workshop.
The Royal Academy of Arts, in collaboration with the Sunny Art Centre, hosted a Chinese ink workshop for its visitors. The event took place at the historic Reynolds Room and more than 300 participants experienced the magical possibilities of Chinese ink. Thanks to this workshop, people became accustomed to and inspired by this unique art form, which they might have not had a chance to explore directly before. Hence, differently from mainstream drawing/painting workshops, this event gave people the possibility to experience a different art form.
