French Graffiti Artist Tilt and his “Panic Room”
April 24, 2012 § Leave a comment
Amazing French Graffiti Artist Tilt was asked to design a room for Au Vieux Panier Hotel in Marseille, France. As you can see, half of the room was covered in graffiti while the other half is left untouched… Please check it out and see what do you think.
“The hotel Au vieux panier asked me to design a room, I first told them that I wasn’t interested doing just decoration in the room but I wanted to create something that will look more like an installation. I thought about it also as a huge canvas where I needed to think about the composition and play with the empty white part of the room to accentuate more the idea of Chaos on the other part. Then I asked my friend Tober who gat a great old school style for tags, Grizz who is also the man behind the camera and Don Cho who is a Hip Hop singer from Marseille but who used to be a tagger from my home town Toulouse. It took one week to do the whole thing cause the idea was to exaggerate what you can usually see in some abandoned places. Too much tags, too much drips, too much sentences, too much throw ups … What I also wanted to show is that people can appreciate any type of graffiti, even the more basic, it’s just a matter of point of view …” — Tilt
