Whitewashed motel art in LA

French artist Vincent Lamouroux has transformed Silver Lake’s deserted and derelict Sunset Pacific Motel (aka the ‘Bates Motel’) into a temporary art installation. Using a water-soluble whitewash, Lamouroux has blanched the entire building including a billboard and the Mexican fan palms that fringe the property.

Titled ‘Projection’, the installation is described as a “temporal intervention into an iconic piece of LA’s architectural history and urban lore”. The installation will run for two weeks from April 26 before the weather and graffiti artists inevitably reclaim the building. Here are some of my favourite photos of the public art piece on Instagram – enjoy!
