The historic world-renowned Hilton San Francisco Union Square, which has just undergone a $51 million refurbishment, now boasts 11 exquisite pieces of original artwork designed by international contemporary artist Pamela Nielsen.
The tailor-made and exclusive pieces of artwork commissioned by ForrestPerkins, the design team for the Hilton Hotel project, were specifically created by Pamela Nielsen to represent the stunning skylines of San Francisco in California. The inspiration for these unique designs came from photos of the cities magnificent sunrises and sunsets, with Alizarin crimson, metallic copper and gold’s and a touch of Phthalo blue representing the San Francisco sunrise, and deep purples with coral to dark to medium purples and lavender for the sunsets.
“Collaborating with the ForrestPerkins and Hilton designers on the SF Hilton Union Square was exciting and extremely fulfilling,” says Pamela. “One of my passions as an artist is to co-create with my clients to achieve their desired look and feel. It pushes me and allows me to expand my repertoire. This project did just that!”
“Pamela’s artwork at the SF Hilton Union Square looks fabulous! Everyone is over-the-moon happy with the final project” – says Ann Theriot, Senior Associate at ForrestPerkins. “It has been great working with her, and I’m so glad that we got the artist and art direction that we originally envisioned for the project. The artwork really comes alive with the lighting and Pamela definitely achieved the energy of the sunrise/sunset concept that we proposed to the Hilton group.”
The themes and titles of many of the Pamela ‘deZigns’ are stimulated by emotions and colors connected to the Chakras, seven primary energy centers in the human body that receive, assimilate and distribute energy. Her artwork has proven to captivate audiences for both residential homes and commercial buildings with the spontaneous, energetic feelings and emotions that each piece exudes.
The San Francisco landmark hotel, one of the largest and tallest hotels on the West Coast, has three towers with guestrooms and suites offering some exquisite views of the city, and is just one of the many new homes of the Pamela brand. This avant-garde artist has collaborated with various architects and interior designers for both commercial and residential clients including 22 pieces in the stunning Mira Hotel Hong Kong, 11 pieces in the DW Bistro in Las Vegas, Dr. Phil and Robin McGraw, 15 pieces in iFreedom Direct in Salt Lake City, the Silver Lake Lodge in Deer Valley, Utah, as well as pieces in Mexico and Canada.

About Pamela Nielsen
Contemporary artist Pamela Nielsen’s charismatic and charming personality, mixed with her avant-garde artistic style, has earned her unprecedented international recognition. In a short period of time she has been commissioned around the globe by private collectors plus numerous sectors in the business world, including Mexico, Canada, 22 pieces in the stunning Mira Hotel Hong Kong, 11 pieces in the DW Bistro in Las Vegas, Dr. Phil and Robin McGraw, 15 pieces in iFreedom Direct in Salt Lake City, the Silver Lake Lodge in Deer Valley, Utah and recently 11 large pieces of tailored art to complement the $51million refurbishment at the Hilton Hotel San Francisco Union Square in California.
Born in Toronto, Canada, Pamela Nielsen is an artistic product of Italian – Hungarian heritage. Although she is a well-seasoned traveler, she currently lives with her family in Salt Lake City, Utah where she cultivates her artistic flair through her captivating and visually spectacular artwork.
Loving the arts of every kind, Pamela dabbled in pastels, calligraphy, cartoons, and even ventured into piano performance playing a concerto at the Spokane World’s Fair. A natural performer she took up singing, as well as acting, appearing on various television commercials, TV series, voiceovers, and print work.
In 2003, while mixing her vocal CD, “i am free”, a celebration of God’s healing power in her life, she was inspired to capture that freedom by painting with acrylics on metals, Plexiglas, wood and other surfaces. Having never painted before and trusting the process, a new art form emerged and she developed her international brand PAMELA™ which also includes prints produced on fine art papers fused between Plexiglas as well as dye-infused metal imaging, and aluminum for outdoor pieces.
PAMELA™ contemporary art is the expression of passion, power, color, emotions and energy. Most of the colors, themes and titles of the originals and deZigns are inspired and connected to Chakras, the seven primary energy centers in the human body that receive, assimilate and distribute energy. Loving the Z in her maiden name Gerzeli, the new concept ‘ChakraZ™’ was born, and the use of Z continues to thread through all of the titles in the PAMELA™ brand.
As an artist, Pamela Nielsen continues to evolve with her PAMELA™ brand. Her amazing multi-scaled colorscapes offer a distinctive complement for residential homes, hotels, hospitals, airports, restaurants, luxury spas and more.
