|Art of the Oasis|
like the other ships of Royal Caribbean International, Oasis of the Seas
is a true floating art gallery at sea. Oasis of the Seas is home to more
than 9,300 pieces of art by 21 artists of different nationalities.
The collection is valued at more than ten million dollars. Each
piece has been selected by the talented team at IC Art.
At the time of Oasis of the Seas' debut, IC Art had worked for over eighteen years to provide stunning art installations for Royal Caribbean International. With this partnership, IC Art has provided art work for eighteen brand new ships and for approximately twelve ship refurbishments.
Royal Caribbean International initially meets with IC Art to discuss the concept of the new ships and once it has been determined, they then work with individual architects responsible for the venues to discuss the desired theme for each location.
out artwork for each new ship is undertaken by a team of curators who
seek out talented artists and pieces of art from across the globe.
Each project is overseen by a creative director. In the case of
the Oasis of the Seas, this process was taken out by Mariangela Capuzzo,
who was responsible for ensuring continuity throughout the ship.
The common theme of art throughout the Oasis of the Seas is 'The Wonder of Our World'. This this theme was chosen for both Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas by IC Art partner Joan Blackman for continuity. The them has enough scope to cover the many art spaces on board both ships.
As guests enjoy their personal holiday aboard Oasis of the Seas, they will discover an amazing array of beautiful pieces which span all art forms, including painting, sculpture, light installations, collage, and mosaic.
