A simple plain white hotel room, very minimalistic, clean white bedsheets. That’s the first side. But on the other side there are colours and graffiti all over the space. Not a simple white spot was left empty.
That is not vandalism in an abandoned hotel room, but the creation of the international graffiti artist Tilt. The artist from Toulouse has designed one of the five Hotelrooms of Au Vieux Panier Hotel in Mareseille. The hotel wants to offer its guests to sleep in art and therefore lets each room redesign every year by new artists.
Tilt created in february 2012 the so called “Panic Room” and first he wasn’t interested doing just decoration in the room. He wanted
to create something more like an installation. It took one week to design the whole room, the idea was to exaggerate what can usually be seen in abandoned places and to show that people can appreciate any type of graffiti, even the more basic, it’s just a matter of point of view.
