CHARLOTTE POSNER X COYA MAYFAIR
To celebrate its 10-year Anniversary, award-winning Peruvian restaurant, COYA Mayfair, unveils an intriguing partnership with in-demand, fine artist and illustrator, Charlotte Posner. Known for her highly collectable, idiosyncratic and playful ‘Pop Doll’ creations, Charlotte will use traditional dip-pen and ink, combined with acrylic and watercolour paints, to turn five authentic glass Pisco jars into a celebratory art installation, for guests to enjoy. The COYA Mayfair X Charlotte Posner collaboration, created by the global brand collaboration platform, The Caviar Spoon, will be unveiled on Wednesday 11th May.
Skilled craftsmanship and artistic endeavour are central tenets of Peru’s culture; highly prized over thousands of years. This means a visit to COYA is never just about enjoying the finest contemporary Peruvian cuisine and cocktails. COYA also seeks to immerse guests in an unforgettable sensory and cultural voyage, which is why art is integral to its story, and the upcoming birthday celebrations. As a passionate champion of the medium, it showcases the skills of emerging and established talent, at its restaurants across the globe. Each COYA location across the globe will be partnering with a different local artist to decorate their Pisco jars, further unveilings will be announced soon.
The forthcoming partnership is just such an example; one Charlotte Posner relishes: “I am excited to use the novel medium of glass Pisco jars as my canvas. They are an iconic, traditional part of Peruvian culture and this, coupled with my fascination for its singular blend of bright, bold symbolic patterns and shapes, has fired my creativity. It is an expressive, joyful aesthetic I seek to infuse in my own creations! I cannot wait to see my artistic tribute play a part in COYA’s 10-year birthday festivities.”
Yannis Stanisiere, COYA CEO, is whole-hearted in his enthusiasm for the collaboration: “Charlotte’s eye-catching artwork mirrors the vivaciousness and colour, so singular to the Peruvian way of life. Her quirky, lively artistic expression is perfectly in keeping with its unique spirit of adventure – something COYA strives to replicate in all it does.”
