It all started with one stroke of a marker. Faced with a basement with nothing but boring cream colored walls, 53 year old Charlie Kratzer knew something had to be done. So he went to work with the simplest of artistic instruments: a Sharpie marker. And with that, he began the first piece of Sharpie art that would come to adorn his basement walls, Salon by Picasso. As he and his wife Deb are great lovers of the classic painters, filling their home with their works was a natural choice. The basement now features many more of Charlie’s recreations of works by other notable artists such as Monet and Seurat. But his Sharpie masterpieces extend to pop culture also, with appearances by Rocky and Bullwinkle, The Marx Brothers, and R2D2. And perhaps best of all, Charlie’s Sharpie art gallery only cost him some (highly-enjoyed) time and $10.
