Shepard Fairey Has Brought Some 'Peace' To The Line Hotel

August 15, 2014 at 2:34 PM | by | ()

There are already so many cool things to see at The Line Hotel in Los Angeles from the ruched t-shirts that adorn the ceiling above the check-out desk to the crazy, geometric-shaped lobby seating to the "donuts" on the pillows and the Roy Choi restaurant, POT. But now, there's something else to admire at The Line Hotel.

Contemporary street artist, Shepard Fairey, the man behind the Obama "Hope" poster, has created a 10-story mural on the facade of the property called, "Peace Tree. Notice Fairey's trademark Obey Giant face in the center.

While the finished product is pretty sweet to look at, the time-lapse video is way better, especially the shot from inside one of the guest rooms.

The hotel says the Peace Tree is the first in a series of revolving art that will be featured on the hotel's wall. We just hope it's not too quickly revolving, we'd like to look at this Peace Tree for a while.

We poked around the hotel recently—click through to see the rest of the newly-renovated rooms!

There are hotels like the Renaissance New Orleans Arts where art is used to create a sort of sanctuary for guests, and then there are hotels that have designed entire lobbies around art. Case in point: the iconic lobby ceiling mural at The Palmer House Hilton. We stopped by earlier this week following a recently completed, massive restoration of the mural and totally fell under the hotel’s art for art’s sake spell.
