This is a Laundromat

This laundromat has so many portraits of celebrities. It is actually the owner who draws all of them. He came up with the idea when he was thinking how he could entertain customers while they are waiting for their clothes to dry. He operates four stores just like this! So there are over 1000 portraits total. It's just amazing!


It looks like an art gallery with laundry machines and driers. It is open 24/7.


Each portrait is so detailed. You can see the fine texture of hair and wrinkles.


Wow, I know whose portrait this is! Oh, now the laundry is done!
