A Tile Addict’s true collection wouldn’t be complete without covering the most creative and impressive mass mosaics that can be found throughout the globe. We’ve covered the tiled town of Fusterlandia in Cuba, a selection of fully tiled homes and spaces such as Carrie Reichardt’s Treatment Rooms in West London, Susan Gardner’s Brooklyn home, and Cheri Pann and Gonzalo Duran’s Mosaic Tile House in Venice, California.
And today there is another to add – “Vincent City”. Despite the home’s traditional surroundings of Guagnano in Italy, artist and eccentric Vincent Brunetti wanted his private space to reflect the vibrancy within himself, and there is no better way than with the magic of mosaics.
Recycled tiles create sprawling motifs across every corner of the estate, incorporating sculpture and memorabilia to further the vision. The mosaics themselves were created by Orodè Deoro, an artist who lived on site for around five years, designing and crafting.
Originally met with disapproval from the local authorities, who did not appreciate the drastic style and divergence form traditional architecture, Brunetti was eventually (thankfully) able to convince them to let the artworks stay.
