Discover our Suite Jackson Pollock:

Our boutique hotel, Torel Avantgarde, represents this artist from the Abstract Expressionism period in a Suite.

Dark colors in your bedroom are associated with depression and alcoholism.


He lived in a “dark world”, where he escaped through art, which is the opposite of that world – expressive and dynamic.   

In the wall painting, Jorge Curval, the artist of the paintings of our hotels in Porto, represented the figure of Jackson Pollock painting using one of the techniques for which he is best known, the “drip and splatter” technique, an art form that avoids identifiable parts within the screen.
