His name is Steve or Stephen Wright and the house is called House of Dreams. It is outrageous, wild, cool and so very original and inspiring.

Whenever I feel that my own 'pimping' maybe is a bit weird, I just think about Wrights art and I know that I'm still very minimal and modest in customizing and pimping stuff;-).
The Dutch blogger Henk van Es from Outsider environments wrote a nice blogpost about Stephen Wright and his House of Dreams.
This document is also an interesting read. As is this post on dulwichonview.org.uk.
Check out this Picasa Webalbum from his personal friend Sue Kreitzman, a very interesting and artistic lady herself. (More about her in another blogpost.)
Visiting the House of Dreams is definitely on my to-do-list!
What do you think about Wrights art? Are you fascinated, enchanted, impressed? Or is it way too much for you? Too over the top? Too campy?
