About the Mosaic Tile House
Thanks to photos online, I felt I had a good idea of what I was getting myself into when I ventured up to Venice Beach to see the Mosaic Tile House. This is a home completely transformed into a piece of art, with the main emphasis on mosaics. What I quickly learned though is that photos really cannot do this place justice.
There are endless details to admire, many filled with humor and irony. Cheri and her husband, Gonzalo, clearly not only have a natural artistic talent but also a wicked sense of humor. All materials are recycled donations.
Also make sure to visit the Venice Beach Canals nearby!
That is what I like to see! Turning one man’s trash into embedded beauty that will last so much longer. Tours are offered for $20 a pop and last around 1 hour. I highly recommend stopping by to re-fuel your creative juices and leave on an inspired high. They have been working on transforming this house since 1996 and it shows. You will not be disappointed!
