The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts unveiled its desk calendar for 2024 which has been designed in a unique partnership with the Mouth and Foot Painting Artists Association (MFPA), an international registered society of disabled artists who create art with their mouth or foot.
Conceptualized with the theme ‘Coming together to do good at The Leela’, the calendar showcases beautiful artistic narrations of the twelve iconic panoramas of The Leela hotels, painted by twelve boundlessly talented and specially-abled artists from MFPA. Each month uncovers the extraordinary charm of fine art that transports, page by page, into the mesmerizing world of The Leela featuring grand architecture and verdant landscapes.
Rooted in the timeless ethos of ‘Atithi Devo Bhava – Guest is God’, The Leela has been on a continuous journey to redefine luxury through a lens of responsibility and sustainability. This collaboration highlights the brand’s commitment to contributing towards community development through meaningful partnerships.
Speaking on this remarkable association, Mr. Anuraag Bhatnagar, Chief Executive Officer, The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts, said, "We are grateful to Mouth and Foot Painting Artists for their creative contribution in designing our annual calendar. It is not just impressive but rather inspiring to witness the art created by these differently-abled artists.”
Mr. Bobby Thomas, Country Head, Mouth and Foot Painting Artists Association, India, added, "We are delighted to have partnered with The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts for their annual desk calendars and thank them for providing a platform for our artists to showcase their talent."
