Be inspired by this website to make some hidden art in a place that is not your own.

To clarify, displays works of art (paintings and drawings) that lie hidden behind objects such as mirrors, photographs, and paintings. Hiding such art - on the wall, and not in your home or place or business - is your goal

Man you are tempting me to join a group.
No No I must resist.
Abstinance is the only answer!

The clarification was added by the PTBs, but I think it's a good one.

Can't wait to do this one!

Secret "Wall" Tattoos?
posted by Ariock Knight on July 1st, 2007 11:25 AM

The site shows a few hidden works that are placed on the underside of chairs. Would such a deviation from the literal be acceptable? What about non-wall room surfaces, such as ceilings or floors?

Whatever fits!

Sure, you can go for deviations in placement, if you feel strongly that your unique vision for a completion necessitates that. The main thing to stick to is the hiding.
However, I expect that the more bold you are, the more votes you'll garner...

Does the "art" have do be strictly painting or drawing?

"…That being said, it's always nice to see a task attacked in a variety of ways. Ideally, a well conceived task offers players room to bring their own creativity to the obstruction/inspiration provided: Trespassing, for example, would encompass sneaking into a number of specific buildings. Or functions. Or cyberspaces. And so on.…"

Someone coded the navbar over on the left so that it listed incoming tasks - those not approved yet, but soon. This problem has since been addressed.

Secret Wall Tattoos by Lincøln August 14th, 2007 10:09 AM

I found myself in a hotel room last weekend. I kept looking at this mirror across from my bed, so I decided to leave a secret wall tattoo. And what better to put behind a mirror than a self portrait? This is the Best Western in Chicago on 3434 N. Bro...

Good Nite Inn 1675 Industrial Park Ave Redlands, CA 92374 Room 226 The Good Nite Inn is no 4 star hotel so I knew it needed a little whimsy to brighten it up. There was some pretty gross art on the wall, but painting isn't my specialty. Making min...

I went in completely prepared to do this task - or so I thought. I brought along two screwdrivers (standard and Phillips) in case screws needed removing, and three Sharpies. When I was waiting in line at the front desk, I noticed a sign that told g...

I was in a grim, seedy hotel feeling annoyed by the state of artificial intelligence research and impatient to head out for this year's Harry Potter convention when I realized that I should not pass up the tasking opportunity at hand.

Back at the hotel room, I'm sitting back watching Batman and eating oranges. A slice falls, tumbling under the air conditioning unit. Reaching under, I find something scrawled on the wall just above the floor. I was sure I had seen something li...

Secret Wall Tattoos by Poisøn Lake June 29th, 2009 11:35 AM

This is not exactly an epic completion, but the opportunity for spontaneous tasking arose & I took it. Some background: I found myself trapped in Fallon, Nevada for some vague 'family event' before my final drive from conservative-butthole-of-no...
