The Leela -  A Symphony of Art, Hospitality and Inclusion

In an inspiring move, The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts have embarked on a remarkable journey with the Mouth and Foot Painting Artists Association (MFPA) to bring a blend of luxury and social consciousness to the forefront.

This partnership has led to the creation of The Leela's 2024 desk calendar, a masterpiece that showcases the exceptional talents of differently-abled artists.

These artists, armed with their unique abilities, have painted the iconic vistas of The Leela's properties, offering a window into the soul of Indian hospitality through their art.

Artistic Narratives of Iconic Destinations

The 2024 calendar is more than just a collection of dates; it's a narrative of beauty, resilience, and artistry. Each month reveals a stunning portrayal of The Leela's properties, intricately painted by artists who use their mouths and feet to express their creative visions. These paintings are not just illustrations; they are stories of determination, capturing the grandeur of The Leela's architecture and the natural beauty of its surroundings.

Evolving Luxury with a Conscience

The Leela's ethos, 'Atithi Devo Bhava – Guest is God', has always been about honoring the rich tapestry of Indian culture and hospitality. This collaboration with MFPA underscores The Leela's dedication to inclusivity and community development, redefining luxury as an experience that enriches both the guest and the wider community. It's a testament to The Leela's commitment to creating meaningful partnerships that support and uplift.

Leaders in Hospitality and Art Unite

The collaboration has been met with enthusiasm from both parties. Anuraag Bhatnagar, CEO of The Leela, emphasized the evolving understanding of luxury as an enriching experience, praising the MFPA artists for their inspiring contributions. Bobby Thomas, Country Head of MFPA India, expressed gratitude towards The Leela for providing a platform to showcase the talents of their artists, highlighting the pride and joy in seeing their work appreciated by guests of The Leela.

The Artists Behind the Masterpieces

The calendar features the works of diverse artists, each bringing their personal story and artistic style to the fore. From Pralay Dey's depiction of The Leela Palace Bengaluru to Vyshak K's stunning rendition of The Leela Kovalam, the artists' backgrounds are as varied as their art, showcasing the depth of talent within the MFPA. Their work not only decorates the pages of the calendar but also tells the tale of their indomitable spirit.

The Leela: A Beacon of Indian Hospitality

The Leela continues to be a pioneer in the hospitality industry, merging traditional Indian hospitality with modern luxury. It celebrates India's rich heritage through its properties, each a landmark of cultural and aesthetic significance. As The Leela looks forward to its next phase of growth, it remains dedicated to offering experiences that are not only luxurious but also conscious and enriching, staying true to its principle of 'Atithi Devo Bhava – Guest is God'.
