ArtThe Half Graffiti Hotel Room

Who doesn’t want to relax in a pristine white hotel room….with graffiti?! Yes, you are seeing that right!
This half graffiti room called Panic Room by the artist Tilt is part of an artistic effort by the Auvieux Panier Hotel in Marseille, France. The hotel allows six different artists annually to transform six different rooms in their own signature style to create amazing atmospheres! 
Panic Room is split into two: clean white walls contrasted by colorful graffiti spray painted all over the walls, floor, and even the bed! This graffiti masterpiece took a week to complete!
And yes, you can stay the night there.
Check out the other eye-popping rooms!

ArtDIY: Wine Bottle Art

If any of you winos out there are anything like me, you’ve probably got a few, er, *cough* many empty wine bottles clogging up the recycling bin. Well, no more! Dig those puppies out and wash ‘em off, because it’s time for a little DIY! (If you’re not 21, just borrow a few empties from your ‘rents.) With just a little TLC, these beautiful bottles can add ambient charm to any room and any occasion.
Here’s What You Do:
Step 1:  Cut your bottle. Using a glass cutter is the most effective and precise way to get a clean cut, and you can get those at any hardware or craft store. However, if you don’t want to spend the dough, you can do it for free like this:

Step 2: Gather tea lights, holiday lights, candles, wicks, flowers, spray paint – whatever you want to accessorize your bottles. Decorate accordingly. The options are endless!
Here are some ideas:
Tumblers
Centerpieces
Tiki Torches
Chandeliers
Garden Decorations
Vases
Candle Holders
Step 3: Show off your handiwork! Let us see any of your DIY with wine bottles on our Facebook or Pinterest!

ArtPeople Pixel Portraits

 
Oh hai, Audrey…I mean, all the people dressed in red and black to create the coolest-EVER picture of Audrey.
 
Artist Craig Alan, a 41-year-old New Orleans transplant from California, studied art and theater while in college and has become known throughout the States for his displays of unique visual art. Much of his art has its roots in street portraiture and the human form, evidenced by the incredible “pixelated people” above and blow. Dressed head to toe in either all black or all red, the people are stragetically placed into position so as to create a famous likeness.
 
Pretty sweet, huh?
 
 
 
 
Anybody else secretly want to gather up all your friends now and try to make pixel picturess?
