Colorful skulls on an old french chateau

The artist Okuda San Miguel’s transformed  the facade of a 19th-century castle in Château, France. After stints as a school and holiday center for children, the castle was abandoned for nearly 30 years.

The intervention, titled Skull in the Mirror, covers the gigantic home’s facade in a mix of colorful polka dots, and is flanked on either side by two three-story skulls. Three dormer windows at the top of the castle are lined in bright red, blue, and orange, while the second story windows serve as openings for the prismatic skull’s four combined eyes.

Five years ago it was acquired by the local Town Hall. Recently it became a site for Urban Art Paris’ LaBel Valette Festival, which hosted Okuda the last weekend in June.
