Art Onboard Harmony of the Seas

By BijalFriday 24th June 2016

Marc Fornes' IVY. Marc Fornes' IVY.

At Royal Caribbean we love art; it’s an important part of the way our ships look and a vital part of the guest experience. Harmony of the Seas houses one of our biggest and best art collections yet, with 3,000 unique pieces which have been carefully chosen for the ship. Read on to find out more about the magnificent collection onboard Harmony of the Seas.

The Collection

To give our collection a clear direction, we chose an inspirational theme: “The Wonder of Our World, The World We Live In”. Working together with the International Corporate Art (ICArt), we curated an eclectic art collection from this theme, sourcing original and existing artworks from some of the world’s most notable artists. With so many pieces, it’s no surprise that you’ll find art almost everywhere you turn. From the stairwells to the neighbourhoods, awe-inspiring art is dotted all over the ship to surprise and delight our guests. The collection itself is incredibly varied, covering a range of mediums, from sculpture to photography. The collection includes works by artists from 60 different countries – here are just three of our favourite sculptors. Desire Obtain Cherish's Rose Colored Glasse - another artwork on the ship.

Marc Fornes

Artwork: IVY Marc Fornes is a registered architect and founder of THEEVERYMANY™ studio, New York, where he creates mind-blowing sculptures which combine art and architecture. Using applied computer science and digital fabrication, Fornes designs and develops distinct structures which often stand at huge heights. He’s exhibited all over the world, including the Centre Pompidou and Art Basel. His onboard installation, IVY, is made from 10,813 brightly coloured aluminium pieces and measures a massive 40 metres tall. The piece was created specifically for Harmony of the Seas and can be found in the ship’s forward lift atrium.

John Breed

Artwork: Medusa’s Shoes Dutch artist, John Breed, has been making art for over 20 years, travelling the world for inspiration and picking up new techniques along the way. His sculptures vary in their design, from large typographical structures to smaller object-based pieces. In Medusa’s Shoes, Breed has reimagined Medusa’s snakes as legs. The legs, which are painted a shimmery gold, wear different styles of shoes and protrude from a plinth in the Entertainment Palace.

David Černý

Artwork: Head David Černý is a well-known sculptor hailing from the Czech Republic. His work often has a political slant and is thought of as being quite rebellious. He’s created huge bronze babies, a giant bus doing press-ups and many more artworks that are just as show-stopping. His piece for the Harmony of the Seas, Head, is made from five tons of stainless steel in the shape of a three-dimensional head. The steel layers are connected to motors which move, creating a constantly changing artwork. You can find David Černý’s work in the Royal Promenade. David Černý's Head. David Černý's Head.
