This 70-year-old couple turned a run-down house in LA into an art piece
Go see the house with over a million pieces of colored tile
"I needed to build a studio. The house was very ugly, and I needed to do something desperate to beautify it," Cheri told Best LA of her inspiration behind the home makeover. She and her partner, who is also an artist, took on the house piece by piece.
"Gonzalo had done mosaic tiling before so he moved me into making tiles. Little by little, it happened," Cheri said. The couple would paint intricate square tiles and then shatter them before gluing them to the house, the effect is a broken masterpiece.
"They were gonna be 4x4 tiles but then once we broke em' that's when the fun started. It's such a great pastime," Gonzalo said.
The mosaic house is open for visitors and for $15 guests can receive a private tour from the lovely couple.
