Have you ever stayed in a museum-like boutique hotel that provides personal experiences and takes you on a journey back in time to explore traditions, culture and folklore of another nation? Well, you will be able to experience this once our 17-room hotel opens in Tbilisi later this year. The House Hotel Old Tbilisi will feature hand-painted bespoke wall murals by Musya Qeburia, an artist based in Tbilisi, Georgia. Every guest rooms will showcase a different element inspired by the local culture and seen through the lens of the local artist Musya Qeburia.
Musya is an art director, aan avid art lover and a street artist whom you can spot decorating the walls of Tbilisi. She creates non-commercial and commercial art projects, digital illustrations, street art, and wall paintings, as well as handmade jewelry and accessories.
For the murals in The House Hotel Old Tbilisi she drew inspiration from femininity and characters and symbols from the old ancient Georgian alphabet, bringing in the culture of the region into the hotel guestrooms. “The location in this historic neighbourhood, the local scenery and the boutique look and feel of the hotel have been my greatest inspiration to showcase a bit of Georgia to every guest who stays here,” Musya says.
A graduate from Tbilisi Academy of Art, Musya tries to create contemporary and up-to-date visual artwork that presents what she passionately believes in: sensitivity to social issues and creating activist artworks when and where relevant. She has her art splattered all over Tbilisi as she previously took part in the Tbilisi Mural Fest 2019, which saw the City transform into a public exhibition with splendid pieces of contemporary street art.
