Chiodo Art Development
The client developed a 30,000 sq ft multi story entertainment facility in Houston. I was hired to create the most outrageous, eclectic environment I could imagine. It became an African Art Nouveau dream.
My designs were translated into artwork that I created for the restaurant, and also set the style for the finishes and furniture. The sculptural materials were all lightweight and fire retardant. The color palette was bright and sexy.
The design team and contractors were all willing collaborators which made the project run smoothly.
The Lost River Bar & Grille was a huge success. Sadly, the client lost the enitre facility a few years later due to personal issues.
