Floor of Love
(2015-2016) Hotel sáv was among one of the very few hotels in Hong Kong who layers arts and culture together with Charity. In 2015, the year when Hotel sáv opened its door, a distinctive accommodation experience filled with love and arts was revealed to public. The “Floor of Love” unveiled unique hotel interior and guestrooms conceptualized by global artists. On the “Floor of Love”, the entire guest floor was dressed up like an Art Gallery including cross-media art pieces created by artists from Disable Association Hong Kong (ADAHK). Each guestroom carried distinctive character developed by inspirational talents worldwide. All artists were given a key subject to express “Love” in their own ways. Showcase pieces included sketches, photography, drawn works and handicrafts with titles such as Love the Planet, Love the Community, Love the Dream and Love the Memory etc.
To make this Arts campaign more meaningful, Hotel sáv has donated part of the room income to Charity Organizations namely Arts with the Disabled Association Hong Kong (ADAHK) and Make-A-Wish Hong Kong to support the disabled talents and to help creating life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.Explore More >

Mr. Poon is in favor of lotus, which appears in his ‘Harmony’ and ‘Blue & White’ series. ‘Harmony’ consisted mostly in black and white, and usually with the following elements: a big shade of Lotus leaf, along with a bird name as “Double Kindness” portrayed in a tiny gray circle shape, and lotus flowers presented in little red dots. The composition is simple yet expressing an ambient and refreshing atmosphere through the contrast of black and white, as well as the surreal sense of space with the decorative red.
Water Poon is an artist, photographer, designer and film director. He has published various photograph albums, art books, travel notes and his works have been exhibited in various places include Singapore, Tokyo, Canada, United States, Australia and Philippine. Aside from photography, Water Poon is also interested in painting.

BLAKHAT Pop Culture
(2016) Artizians, Hotel sáv and Naverina presented Hong Kong premier of Pop Culture Translated, a solo exhibition of contemporary artist BLAKHAT. The mysterious American artist’s works are to incite and provoke the audience to reflect on today’s society misled and ruled by mass media. Exploring themes of power, control, ego worship, society, and the commodification of the human experience.
Numerous local celebrities such as artist Monie Tung and renowned musicians Ben Chong and Chi Wai Tang attended the event and amazed by the provocative artworks. This exhibition aimed to highlight the value of non-mainstream art, and Mr. Edwin Chuang, CEO & Founder of sáv Hospitality Group expresses, “Despite the growing awareness of art in Hong Kong, people mostly emphasizes on the artist’s fame, technique and aesthetics, only the minority group would dig deep into the artist’s style, horizon, attitude and the genuine message behind the artwork. We hope that by hosting BLAKHAT and other unique artists’ exhibitions in our hotel, we can provide alternatives from the mainstream to the audience, as well as a journey of art appreciation for our guests.”
BLAKHAT hails from Hollywood, California with a strong sense of opposition towards the shallowness of Hollywood and its influence on the world. Throughout history, artists have used their creative expression to expose us to new ideas in politics and culture, combining innovation with art’s greatest strength - its ability to transcend boundaries and make the impact desperately needed in times like today where corporate and government openly use emerging technologies to hold us hostage.
BLAKHAT uses bold Pop Art imagery consisting of large Lucite images, light boxes, a unique graffiti wall and sculptural installation pieces to get across complex messages. Issues are raised around identity, the soulless pursuit of fame at the cost of the authentic self along with commentary on political and religious extremism.Explore More >
