Culture fascinates, divides, brings together and then moves people. ONOMO understands this and visual art is written in its DNA. The ONOMO Visual Art (OVA) label promotes young artists from the African continent, whose work is linked to the worlds of photography and video. In other words, Image is at the heart of the ONOMO lifestyle. Two major exhibitions are organized annually in our hotels.
