SINGAPORE and MCLEAN, Va. -  World-renowned British pavement artist, Julian Beever will bring to life a signature Hilton Hotels & Resorts property on the floor of Singapore's largest retail and lifestyle destination, VivoCity from 4-10 October. Popularly known as the 'Pavement Picasso', Beever was engaged by the global hotel brand as part of its "Stay Hilton, Go Everywhere" campaign, to highlight its extensive portfolio of more than 540 properties in 76 countries.

Using the floor as his canvas, Beever will create a large chalk mural, measuring 4 meters by 5 meters, of a spectacular Hilton property in his signature, three-dimensional style. The artwork will be an illusion that distorts the perception of space and depth when viewed from a specific vantage point, making one feel as if the Hilton property in the artwork is right before their eyes.

"The interactive, engaging format of this event is reflective of the stylish and contemporary essence of Hilton Hotels & Resorts. Julian's ability to produce such impressive works of art with a unique viewpoint mirrors the fresh perspectives that we aim to provide, with the Hilton brand," said Dave Horton, global head, Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand. "By expressing the brand in such an innovative and refreshing way, we hope to showcase our global offerings and capture the imagination of today's savvy travellers."

Shoppers will see the artist in action and get a chance to win a fantastic ski and stay accommodation package for two at the prestigious Hilton Niseko Village, if they correctly guess the featured property and sign up as Hilton Hhonors members. Located in Hokkaido, Japan, Hilton Niseko Village combines adventure and nature with superb facilities and amenities to create a vacation unlike any other. All submissions for the competition must be placed inside the entry box located at the Hilton roadshow in VivoCity before 9 p.m., 10 October 2010 to qualify. Participants also have to sign up as Hilton HHonors® members, the comprehensive guest reward programme under Hilton Worldwide that enables members to earn points for hotel stays and enjoy exclusive benefits at any of the 3,600 hotels within the company's global portfolio of 10 hotel brands. This includes brands such as Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Hilton Hotels & Resorts and Doubletree.

Beever will start working on the mural on 4 October and is scheduled to complete the work on 8 October. The finished artwork will remain for public viewing until 10 October. After which, he will travel to Australia where he will draw another Hilton property on the walkways along Brisbane's Queen Street Mall.

The brand currently has 47 hotels in operation in Asia and more than 540 properties in 76 countries worldwide.  In July, China's first luxury airport hotel - Hilton Beijing Capital Airport -- opened.  Today, the brand's aggressive development pipeline includes more than 40 projects across the Asia Pacific region.
