F&B concept Baby Q, (formerly Q43) underwent a makeover to offer customers a new and revived experience that not only maintains some of the new distancing regulations, but also offers a totally different vibe.

Working alongside Broadway Interiors and Art Painting Lab, the creative team on the job, reimagined a new lounge and dine concept by creating impactful art pieces such as murals, mixed media prints, daring lighting features against an out-of-the-box camouflage ceiling.

To start the project, Art Painting Lab artists made a real statement with a gradient of blending green to red camouflage that spans the entire lounge, creating a transformative experience for everyone walking through. Following this vibe of youth, fun and punch are strategically placed mixed media pieces made up of clever manipulations of iconic art that break the rules! In the entrance, the artists portrayed the feminine component of the design with a young, independent “Baby Q type of Gal” through a cheeky, sweet and flirty large-scale mixed media portrait with a bit of edge. The intention for many of these artworks was to create pieces that the patrons of Baby Q could relate to and have fun posing with for selfies and are photo-worthy. Mixed pieces, contrasted with a few feminine, blissful murals through the bar and back dining area, create eye-catching comfort in a space full of drama and punch.

“This is the first bar and lounge we’ve worked on and it was great fun to push the boundaries by manipulating iconic art and experimenting with absurdity.  Theatrics are an important component now, because people are expecting more visual entertainment if they choose to venture out. Art is a very good way to achieve that cost effectively as it can add drama and interactively bemuse the visiting guest,” said Sam Saliba, founder of Art Painting Lab.
