Felix Kultau (born 1984 in Germany) produced a new series of works especially for our shop titled „buy the ticket, take the ride“. The four unique locker doors are collaged and spray-painted with motifs referencing Chateau Marmont, the famous LA Sunset Boulevard hotel. While having been modeled after the royal Château d’Amboise in France, Chateau Marmont remains connected to a wild history and present of cavalier celebrities: James Dean jumped out of a window, Led Zeppelin crossed the hotel’s lobby on motorcycles, John Belushi died in it from an overdose, and Britney Spears as well as Lindsay Lohan were banned from its premises, to name only a few infamous incidents.
