Until the end of April, guests on board Belmond‘s Eastern & Oriental Express will be part of a whole new art-based experience as they travel from Singapore to Thailand.

The exterior of two of its iconic carriages have been turned into a stunning ‘rolling canvas’ by Singapore based street artist, Rajesh Kumar. Splashed across the carriages is the artwork – The Koi Pond, a colourful deception of koi fish in a brilliant blue pond. A graduate in fine arts from Goldsmiths University of London, Kumar says, “The koi pond has always fascinated me. The colours and vibrancy of the fish and the water reflect emotions and I felt it would beautifully represent Eastern & Oriental Express. To me it depicts the joy of travel, movement and the coming together of friends and family.”

Arnaud Champenois, senior vice president, brand & marketing feels, “Eastern & Oriental Express is an icon of luxury travel in Asia; the colonial carriages have always evoked the spirit of the golden age of travel and today, as we look to our future heritage, we are revealing a contemporary new look and feel, in partnership with some of Asia’s leading creative talent. “
