French Hotel’s “Panic Room” Has a Split Personality

by Hazel Chua

I’ve always had this appreciation for graffiti art. Notice that I’ve inserted the word “art” after “graffiti,” because I’m not talking about random scribbles or names that have been spray-painted haphazardly on walls. I’m talking about, you know, graffiti that was drawn or painted on as art.

I think this sort of art that I’m talking about is best exemplified by what Internationally-renowned graffiti artist Tilt did with this Au Vieux Panier hotel room in Marseille, France.


The hotel commissioned the artist to reconceptualize this room for their hotel, which he eventually dubbed as the “Panic Room.”


There seems to be an invisible line dividing the room, from pristine white to shockingly colorful and graffiti-filled. Tilt’s room is just one of five that have been re-done in more than just the aesthetic sense in the Au Vieux Panier.


If I ever get a chance to stay at the hotel, I know what room I’d be picking. Although I pretty much have a feeling a night in the Panic Room would burn a pretty big hole in my pocket.
