A wall of books as painting canvas displayed in Fully Booked BHS

Here's a nice artwork piece that I spotted inside Fully Booked Boni High Street. Its a one of a kind painting piece painted in a wall of books.

The stack of books estimate height is around 40 feet. Its a big attraction here in Fully Booked and it stand in the middle of the store, you can also view this while on the 2nd floor for a different perspective. But i like it viewing from the ground floor and look up to see to see the whole painting.

We were there to buy books for our toddler son, and this art piece magnets me for a few minutes...


According to Fully Booked's website

"Renowned LA-based artist Mike Stilkey creates whimsical painted sculptures out of stacked books. Using a mix of ink, colored pencil, paint and lacquer, he depicts a melancholic cast of characters inhabited by ambiguous spaces and narratives of fantasy and fairy tales. Join us as we exhibit new works from Stilkey, including a massive book sculpture as well as smaller works that will be available for sale."

There was an exhibit last June 7 and 8 and the artist Mike Stilkey was there!!
ohh wow!!!! 


Here's a closer look on the books...yes...they are real!
not sure if all books are glued together just for safety.. and I wonder who will take this giant art work home ?
