Swimming Pool Becomes Colorful Pinwheel Made of 130,000 Tiles

If you’ve never really thought about swimming pools being works of art, you’re not alone. Prior to seeing Alex Proba’s pool art, we pretty much looked at pools as utilitarian. Sometimes beautiful and sculptural? Yes. Works of art? No. That is until spotting a jaw-dropping pool on Felipe Pantone’s Instagram account recently. Felipe Pantone is an Argentinian-Spanish artist known for his chromatic, pixelated and digitized glitchy artwork. Now, he’s taken his signature aesthetic and turned a basic rectangular pool into a colorful pinwheel made using ONIX mosaic tiles in just seven tile colors.

The 1″ mosaic tiles allow for the colors to blend into each other creating a visually delightful pattern.
