Art Meets Hospitality

Four Seasons Resort and Residences at The Pearl-Qatar has commissioned a series of illustrations and animated videos by the talented artist Clym Evernden to celebrate its launch.

The newly opened property, a glamorous beachfront oasis located at the Pearl-Qatar, has partnered with the well-known British artist and director Clym Evernden. Marking his debut in the Middle East, Clym has created an array of captivating illustrations and animations that capture the unique charm of the property.

By collaborating with Clym, the resort aimed to create a captivating visual story that depicts its energy and sophisticated living experience. Through the creation of four illustrations and four animated videos, Clym presents an eclectic fusion of colours and shapes. The striking illustrations feature various spaces of the property, epitomising four of its distinct features:

Glamorous Apartments: Residence-style suites designed to be a home away from home.
Culinary Destination: Connecting guests to the heart of the local culture and Michelin-star cuisine.
Pristine Private Beach: Creating an inimitable beachfront oasis.
The Pearl Island: One of Qatar’s most upscale and exclusive destinations.

To create the illustrations, Clym researched the wider Doha region and explored various districts and landmarks, examining how the iconic skyline appears reflected in the water both day and night. Clym enriched his imagination with the light-hearted luxury that the property exudes, especially how the different areas, like restaurants and apartments, have their own unique vision and story.

Known for his signature ink-based style, his experiential craft blends different forms of art, including illustrations, mixed media, creative videos and set design. Having worked with several renowned brands in his career, the artist brings a sense of joy and authenticity into the narrative through a more vibrant and unconventional visual language.

The videos were just as artistic and eye-catching as Clym approached the animations with the same spark of creativity he is lauded for. He utilised real objects from the resort, such as room key cards and restaurant menus, to make the videos speak with every detail. Each video also employed moments of stop-motion animation, which is an advanced technique used to present objects in a creative manner.

“Bringing my artistic views to the Middle East by collaborating with Four Seasons at The Pearl-Qatar is an exciting moment in my career,” Clym said. “Every corner of the property was truly inspiring to me. Before starting the initial sketches, I imagined myself immersed in each area of the property, which helped me to discover various ways to present the concept of inside/outside: elegant interior spaces that naturally evolve through to the outside environment.”

The property has scheduled an opening event to showcase and celebrate the new creations, along with culinary activations and a master class for Qatar-based artists by Clym. Throughout their stay, guests can view the illustrations at various touchpoints, immersing their artistic eyes in the beauty of The Pearl-Qatar and its elevated design.

Launched in November 2023, Four Seasons at The Pearl-Qatar is perfect for short vacations and long-term stays, giving guests the opportunity to explore all that Doha has to offer while revelling in residential comfort in expansive rooms and residences.

Home to a series of signature restaurants and bars, including La Méditerranée Robuchon by the Michelin-starred Chef Joël Robuchon, a Chicago-style steak house, and much more, the property creates a lively social ambience where guests can immerse themselves in unforgettable culinary experiences and enriching cultural encounters. Leisure travellers can enjoy a wide selection of amenities like The Spa and indoor and outdoor pools or unwind on a relaxing lounger at the resort’s private beach.

Committed to celebrating art in line with Qatar’s vision to become a cultural hub in the region, Four Seasons at The Pearl-Qatar has been gathering a range of exquisite artworks from diverse locales since its launch. Throughout the property, guests can find contemporary paintings from local Qatari artists, including Hanadi Al-Darwish and Shouq Al-Mana, as well as works by internationally acclaimed creative minds, such as a striking wall sculpture by Turkish artist Gülay Semercioğlu and four large-scale paintings by Parisian painter Maude Maris.

With the new innovative additions from Clym, Four Seasons at The Pearl-Qatar invites guests and art enthusiasts to experience a creative blend of modern illustrations, Qatari heritage, and luxurious stays against the backdrop of Doha’s dynamic skyline and the mesmerising waters of the Arabian Gulf.
