Art Garden is a garden nestled between the main hotel and the plaza of Paradise City.
If you are looking for a place to unwind for a moment while experiencing the various events at all the different locations in Paradise City, Art Garden will be your perfect spot. In the two gardens facing each other along the paradise walk, you can see the magnificent ensemble of two world-renowned Indian artists, Anish Kapoor and Subodh Gupta's signature sculptures. Enjoy your time of relaxation and contemplation while admiring the two works that quietly project the sight of the garden and the visitor's silhouette.
This work expresses the splendid and elegant Palace of Versailles in an extraordinary way, which, as the title implies, does not rely on the artist's experience or on existing semantic narratives and represents the neutral and un-narrative characteristics. This work, placed in a meditative and reflective garden space, allows visitors to observe various images including themselves projected in it and reflect on themselves.

Anish Kapoor, born in Mumbai, is one of the best artists to express the so-called "Modern Sublime". He made his name known with his work "Pigment" in 1980s, a series of bright single-color works made of marble and limewash, and began to work on the surface of highly reflective stainless steel in the late 90s. The artist's work, which reflects the images of the surrounding area dramatically like a mirror, changes by the flow of light reflected on the surface and the movement of the visitor. The space in the mirror, which is seemingly an empty space and an empty container, becomes all the different spaces it could be through reflection, but due to the physical property of the stainless steel surface, it cannot be anything that could be called a space. The artist captures this point as a point of contact between material and nonmaterial and creates an unrealistic and spiritual dimension through physical properties.
The artist uses this object as a daily and religious symbol to expose the effect of values and institutions on human daily life, along with the current features of India's rapid economic growth and westernization.
Born in Bahar, India, Subodh Gupta studied painting at the University of Art and Design, and now lives and works in New Delhi. His works have attracted much attention at major international biennales, and he has held solo exhibitions in Asia, Europe, and the United States many times. Gupta is an artist who exposes contradictions in the life and culture of India by creating dramatic monumental sculptures using images that symbolize India and readymade objects.
