Room 9a – The Carlton Arms Hotel, New York

I spent March 2016 as one of nine artists in residence at the Carlton Arms Hotel, staying in New York for free in return for painting a room. The Carlton Arms is one of very few remaining relics of old New York, a leftover from the days of artists, punks, craziesĀ and weirdos. It’s special and wonderful and there’s nowhere like it. As the Carlton Arms T-shirt says: it’s the hotel you’ll never forget. Here are some photos of my visit and of 9a, the room I painted.
