With his latest house, artist Michael J. Giannotti has made it possible to paint in a completely different style.
The new residence is called the House on Fire and was built on a large piece of land that once housed a factory that manufactured fireworks.
The home’s walls and floors are painted with a palette of bright colors, including a vibrant pink and orange, and Giannetti’s wife, Nicole, said it was inspired by the home she grew up in.
The property is located in a rural area of North Carolina, and its owners were able to save a lot of money by choosing to build on land that was otherwise used as an industrial site.
“The fact that it is on a site that has a lot to do with a lot that is very historically significant, it makes it a very interesting site,” Nicole Giannatti said.
“This property was just one of the many industrial sites in the area that were being destroyed.
This was just a way to preserve some of the beauty and the history of that area,” she added.
Giannotti says he is planning to have the house up for sale by the end of the year, and he said he plans to paint a couple of houses to show off the new style.
“I am going to be very careful about what I put on it because it will be so gorgeous, and I really want to show it off,” he said.
Gittanitzi also created the mural that greets visitors to the house.
He said it will take about two months to paint the house, and that he will have a limited number of the murals available for public viewing.
He says he has plans to have it up in the next few months.
“It’s going to take a while for it to really come together, but once it does, I think it will have been worth the wait,” he explained.
