In addition to displaying some of his own design pieces, the art selected for the exhibit is from an existing roster of ADVOCARTSY's collaborating artists. The selection includes multimedia, sculpture, painting, and digital photography.
His upcoming collaboration with ADVOCARTSY is personal and clearly motivated by passion.

Perhaps his favorite artist featured in the exhibit is Afsoon, an Iranian artist with prominent collections housed in The British Museum, LACMA, and the Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris. “She does a very pop-arty, Warhol-esque, series where she has iconic Iranian features like pop stars or the king or queen—Mixed into that she has photos of world leaders like Winston Churchill and Stalin, takes their faces, and behind [them] has cool graphics of Iranian monuments or postage stamps,” Saghian explains. “They say so much.”
Viceroy L'Ermitage Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills, $$$$
Ryan Saghian: It was recently redone by my friends at SFA Design and they did a beautiful job! Brass, lush velvets, and opulent Hollywood glamour make this place one of my new favorites.
Chateau MarmontHollywood Hills West, $$$
RS: An all time favorite and one of the last remaining "Old Hollywood" hangouts with beautiful California Romantica decor and the most idyllic garden terrace EVER!
Hotel Bel-AirBel Air, $$$$
RS: Romance literally radiates from this place. Its small and quaint and the swan-filled pond surrounding the property is everything!
The Beverly Hills HotelBeverly Hills, $$$$
RS: I still prefer the old lobby before the 2013 renovation but the rest of this iconic hotel has always been on my top list. How can you not love the iconic banana leaf wallpaper, green and pink striped motif, and that incredible valet entry originally designed by my favorite architect, Paul Williams!
Chamberlain West Hollywood HotelWest Hollywood, $$$
RS: This is such a small little boutique hotel but it is SO well done. Beautiful marble work, upscale furnishings, and the chicest little bar make it on my list of top hotels.
