Behold the game room at Rattlecan, the new burger joint from chef to the chef Sammy DeMarco at the Venetian. Antonio Ballatore, who won season 4 of HGTV's Design Star and stars on The Antonio Treatment, brought in his posse of graffiti art friends to have their way with the space.

In the game room, Defer gets top billing with his LA style of design. On the back wall, Curtis Kulig brings his iconic Love Me, which can be found in New York, Los Angeles, Paris and Tokyo. Photojournalist Martha Cooper takes the remaining wall. She earned her stripes documenting subway graffiti in the 1970s and 1980s. Tucked up in a corner, Buck Wild, who was featured on Pimp My Ride. Japanese artist Aiko also created Hello Kitty artwork for one of the games in the back room.

"I took her and her sister machine gun shooting, so now she totally loves machine guns, and special machine gun stencils will line the bottom," Ballatore said of Aiko. "And she's doing a thing for Hello Kitty right now."
