Panic Room

‘I thought about the composition, to play with the empty white half and accentuate the idea of chaos,’ Tilt says.

Now available for booking: a French hotel room is filled with colourful art you might typically find on the street.

At Marseille’s Au Vieux Panier hotel, French graffiti artist Tilt has decorated the room with a even 50-50 split between his art and blank white walls.

The idea was initiated last year in Paris when Tilt recreated an old hotel room in Galerie Celal’s basement, then ‘destroyed’ half of it with graffiti. Thereafter, he was asked by the Au Vieux Panier’s owner, Jessica Venediger, to do the same in a hotel room.

‘I first told her I wasn’t interested in doing just decoration in the room, but I wanted to create something that will more like an installation,’ Tilt explains. He then joined forces with friends Tober (graffiti artist), Grizz (photographer and videographer) and Don Cho (a hip-hop singer from Marseille) to assist.

They completed the project in one week, leaving one half white to ‘accentuate the chaos on the other side.’
