Graffiti Room Design by Tilt

Graffiti room design is one of those trends, companies are using to improve their PR. The hotel Au Vieux Panier in Marseille is regularly asking artists to design one of their rooms – this time, they asked famous, self declared graffiti fetishist Tilt, who is well-known for painting onto female bodies and painted London’s Village Underground not long ago…

…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…

Nice story and an even greater installation! More photos here and here.
