Carrie Reichardt’s house, hidden away on a quiet, suburban street in Chiswick, is a remarkable sight. A building covered from top to bottom in colorful mosaic tiles. It tells a thousand stories, each reflecting the various influences and artists who have helped to create the masterpiece, ever since the project first began in the 90s.
It’s a little garish—some may even call it an eye sore—but it’s also an epic piece of art, and it took over 20 years to complete.
The five bedroom house, owned by artist Carrie Reichardt, is now an ‘uncensored’ public mural. Without the restrictions from galleries that she once faced, Carrie decided to use her home as a canvas, so she could do exactly what she pleased. The house is covered in bright colors and strong political messages and, standing proudly in the middle of an ordinary street in an affluent area, it certainly doesn’t blend in.
