An exclusive new art gallery featuring a collection of original artworks by prolific architect and interior designer Bill Bensley stands ready to open at the InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort.

Located at the Sky Level of the resort, the Bensley Outsider Gallery will house 50 colourful and bold artworks, including prints and paintings, which can be viewed and purchased by in-house guests and visitors alike. Visitors can also hear the story behind each artwork through a unique interactive storytelling approach that uses QR codes and YouTube videos.

Prices for the featured artworks start from US$250, with proceeds to go to wildlife charities, including those dedicated to combating poaching in South-east Asia.

Bensley is known for creating some of Asia’s most iconic hotels and resorts, including the InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort. He took up painting just three years ago and the gallery’s name, “Outsider”, reflects his feeling that he is not a classically trained artist, and considers himself an outsider in the art world.

The Bensley Outsider Gallery will be open from 09.00 to 18.00, Wednesdays through Sundays, upon the reopening of the InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort, when conditions allow.
