Its kaleidoscope of vibrant colors and patterns will wow you. Every room has its own uniquely rich color scheme with explosive mandalas radiating out from the ceilings and into the rest of the house.

Someone once told Wren that his apartment is like “Grey Gardens meets Hellraiser” and we would all have to agree! There’s equal parts macabre and the beauty of the ravages of time.  Every wall and surface grows with his collections like a coral reef consisting of the found and forgotten. Want a piece?  Check out his store!
