Artwork that Says it All

Afflicted with bare walls in our T.V. room, the room we spend the most time in, is a definite problem.

It's mainly due to the fact that my husband and I can't agree on a piece; he's into Warhol pop art while I am obsessed with Diego Riviera, so much so that I would bathe in one his paintings if I could. However, thanks to a friend of mine, who made a laud-worthy discovery on Etsy, I think we finally have a winner.

Even though his pieces are not lit up like Jonathan Adler's coruscating "Drugs" sign, which can be seen hanging in the lobby-turned-lavish Navajo hippie den at The Parker Palm Springs, artist William Dohman of St. Paul Minnesota creates fun handmade words to grace your walls with...ones that stylishly personalize and  define a space.

Best part is Dohman can custom make a word for you. I know a lot of you out there are thinking, "Gleek." I'm not so sure about that. My friend just bought the word, "Holla," which I think is a great way of expressing a love of pop culture.
