In the age of Instagram, something as simple as a wall can be a huge attraction when visiting a city. The Biscuit Paint Wall in Houston is a perfect example of this! When visiting, you may want to try to go very early in the morning or perhaps during the weekend if you want the best shot at seeing most of the wall as possible. Throughout the week, cars will generally be parked along the street and depending on the shot you were wanting to get, you may have to come back later.
The dripping paint and the bright colors will make for the perfect backdrop for a great selfie or a regular photo if you have someone with you. Try moving along the wall to capture shots with different color combinations to give yourself some options. The wall belongs to the store called Biscuit Home, where you can find a variety of interesting items. This store is quite popular and has been featured in several magazines. When the store relocated to this location, they knew that they wanted to do some redecorating. The wall along the store was originally solid black until French painter, Sebastien Boileau, from the company known as Eyeful Art, was recruited to spruce things up a bit. When the wall was created, it was part design and part organic - meaning that he was going to go with whatever happened instead of aiming for some type of perfection. The colorful paint was put into buckets and poured along the top of the wall and allowed to drip down. Be sure to stop at this Instagram ready spot to grab a few photos!
