Mosaic artist, Jo de Freitas, completed her big mural commission for the Greenest Hotel in Africa, Hotel Verde. The installation took place at the hotel in Cape Town, South Africa. I promised installation photos, so here they are.
The artist first laid the final mosaic out in a church hall to ensure everything was in order, before transporting it to site.
A scaffold was erected on the wall to assist the artist in installing each piece safely and accurately. Ceramic and glass tiles were used exclusively for the whole mosaic.
The finished work is something to behold and really enhances the hotel’s exterior facade.
