Brisbane's new Art Series Hotel to be named The Johnson


Art Series Hotel Group is welcoming master colourist Michael Johnson to their collection for their first Queensland property, set to open in Brisbane in June 2016.

The Johnson will be located in Spring Hill, in the former Main Roads headquarters on Boundary Street in a $155 million project and marks a pivotal milestone for the Group in expanding their dedicated art inspired offering across Australia.

Eighty-three spacious suites and two penthouses boasting spectacular views across the city and multi-functional public spaces, will have their walls adorned with the Sydney born artist's original paintings and giclée prints. Guests will be invited to get up close and personal with the hypnotic trademark horizontal bars, and heavily laden surfaces in his works that have led to Johnson being exhibited both nationally and internationally for over 40 years.


"Michael Johnson's work is characterised by the use of intense colours and highly textured surfaces," says Jane O'Neil, Art Series Hotel Group's In House Art Curator, "Johnson's paintings are informed by an expansive engagement with nature, art history and the urban environment and are well suited to the vibrant subtropical landscape of Brisbane."

Much like the group's properties in Melbourne, Adelaide and Bendigo, the boutique hotel will be immersed within a bustling inner city neighbourhood, providing a local perspective for guests.

The hotel will build on the heritage suburb's existing offerings for visitors, residents and local business executives with a resort style 50m pool and deck bar, state of the art gym, restaurant, two cafes and meeting and events facilities.


Art experiences at The Johnson will stretch far beyond the building's walls, as The Johnson will encapsulate all of the Art Series Hotel Group's signature qualities including their infamous art tours and in-room art channels and libraries. Branded Smart cars and Lekker bicycles will be available to explore what the city has to offer and further afield.

Alluxia looks forward to welcoming this new Brisbane boutique hotel to the city. The Johnson, coming to alluxia soon...
