Belmond Launches First ‘Rolling Canvas’ on a Train

Belmond Eastern & Oriental ExpressBelmond has introduced a new concept in luxury rail travel with the unveiling of the Eastern & Oriental Express as it has never been seen before. The exterior of two of the iconic carriages of the Eastern & Oriental Express in Asia will showcase a stunning ‘rolling canvas’ by Singapore based street artist, Rajesh Kumar that will remain on the train until 28 April 2017.

Giving new meaning to ‘Art in Motion’, Belmond has worked with creative experts to curate a fully sensory experience that includes collaborating with leading mixologists ‘Cocktail Professor’ on an innovative new cocktail menu and world-class DJ & music producer, Mr Has, for a contemporary soundscape as well as introducing a relaxed dress code of ‘tropical elegance’.

Belmond commissioned emerging artist, Rajesh Kumar, to create the one of a kind artwork – ‘The Koi Pond’ depicts the joy of travel, movement and the coming together of friends and family – the result is a visual surprise as the train weaves through Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand.

Eastern & Oriental Express travels between Singapore and Bangkok on 2 and 3 night journeys from January to April and September to December carrying up to 82 passengers in all en-suite cabins. Travelling aboard the train is the perfect vantage point from which to view breathtaking scenery and to meet exceptional characters with a story to tell.
