“I would like to thank my mum and dad because since they let me paint on my bedroom walls as a kid, I’ve wanted to live in a property completely covered in characters of my own making,” he joked on Instagram after announcing the property result.

For this project, he spent 900 liters of white paint, 401 cans of black spray paint, 286 bottles of black ink, and 2,296 black pens. It took two years to paint each of the entire six bedrooms, as well as seven other common areas such as the living room, kitchen, and bathrooms—none has been discovered, even the fireplace received paintings on the burners.

Cox doesn’t yet live in the residence, according to The Guardian, but he plans to move there soon with his wife, Alina Cox, and Ms. doodle. He even painted the car that he shares with his partner, who is also an artist and uses to color his creations.
