This chair can Wave

Creating tile mosiac art is one of the oldest forms of art known to man.  Ever since man figured out how to cut rocks into smaller pieces they have been laying it out into interesting patterns and designs.  Sometimes those designs told stories through pictures and sometimes it was just decoration, but it has long been a highly skilled tradition.

That being said, tile art has now taken a contemporary view of how to create it.  I couldn't figure out which artist made this tiled chair, but I know that it was made for a world wide tile artist competition that was held a couple of years ago.  Each artist was given a chair that they had to transform using tile.

I would love to know what you think.



If you zoom in you can see all of the individual tiles that had to be painstakingly applied one at a time.  But I want to know what you think of it?  Do you have a favorite part or technique that this artist did?  Or do you think it is horrible and if so why?  If you were given a chair to decorate, what would you do with it?

  1. To me this is kind of stupid. The concept is good and the work looks good. I'm a person of simple things. To me a chair is made to be sat on. Not some one's art project. That's what I personally think of it.

  2. I think that this is super cool, i can't imagine how much effort went into creating this. It must of taken them a while to find the specific layout of these tiles. I wish all chairs were as nicley decorated as this one.

  6. This is really an amazing piece of art. The time and patience that this person has is incredible on it's own. I would never be able to do this.

  7. I like the way that they made this into a 3D type thing. This is one of them things that you don't see very often. It has to take a lot of time and patients to draw things like this.

  8. It looks pretty darn awesome. I really like the depth it shows with the tiles. But it doesn't look very comfortable, unfortunately. I would never get a chair that would just "sit" there. Haha

  9. I think this looks really cool. I think waves are beautiful to begin with, so just the thought of someone making a wave on a chair is awesome. I would like to get something like this is just sit in my room.

  12. I wish I knew how they got all the tiles to stay on the chair. probably some sort of glue. What is that thing hanging off the chair? Is it some kind of net they stuck the tiles into?

  15. Is the chair made out of fabric or something. But why waste a perfectly good chair. Making something then using a chair is pointless.

  17. This so dope. I would get bored like ten minutes into it though.
    But for someone who has the time and patience to do this, it would be amazing.

  18. I do like the idea of where they're coming from. But if it were me, I wouldn't do it on a chair. Maybe something else, like as a tabletop, or a counter top, something that would get noticed more.

  19. I like the idea and I think we should bring this to art class. But something like this could take weeks to do but if I did it I would try to make it so someone could sit in the chair without ruining it. I also admire his patience and creativity

  20. I wouldn't want to sit on this chair, cause I would break it. I don't know if your supposed to sit on it but just letting everyone know I wouldn't sit on it.

  21. i would sit in this chair. who wouldnt other than max. it is pretty cool if they sell these.

  22. if i was given a chain i would probably sit in it then wait until the last minute to decorate it. It would probably just contain random scribbles.

  23. My brain can't even wrap around this. It's insane. I would definitely sit in this chair. I am always sitting, so why not sit in style.

  31. Doing this would take a lot of patience putting each and every tile on there. It looks really neat because it looks like a wave from the ocean. smart and creative peace of art.

  32. this one is messing with my head. It really looks nice with all of the colors. it's cool how he made the chair and then added the thing on it.

  33. really like this piece of art but it confuses me how he was able to make it look so real. This art looks nice with all the colors and how it is 3D. This is one of my favorite artworks I have seen.

  34. I really like how the tiles blend in so well together. I think I could make one given enough time. The artist must have a lot of patience.

  35. This chair looks like it took hours to do and figure out the placement for the tiles. I love this piece because even though you probably shouldn't sit on this chair it's really beautiful. Finding the tiles in all the right coors must have been hard for the artist.

  36. The water in this picture looks so real and colorful and it really makes the picture stand out a lot. I like it and i don't think i could ever do this and the chair looks cool to.

  38. This piece of art is so unique. To think of two normal things that don't really go together and creating a beautiful piece of art. Very creative and cool.
