Fellow residents living in the same street, Il Regalo Circle in Naples, Florida, are in shock after the man spent a week splattering tins of paint of all manner of colors over the walls of his half-million dollar house. 

What remains is a house that looks as though it belongs more in a cartoon or perhaps a rainbow melted right on top of it.

But the budding artist didn’t just stop at the walls and windows of the house. 

The paint also ended up on a van parked in the driveway which also ended up bathed in color had each of its wheels painted a different color and the question ‘Who is Omar?’ scrawled on the outside.

The mailbox was jazzed up after being coated in a splash of pink, orange and blue.

A friend of Liebman’s was astounded by what he saw and was unable to explain his behavior.  

I can’t believe it. I absolutely can’t believe someone would do something like this. I haven’t seen he inside yet!’ said Alan Klawans to NBC 2. ‘Obviously he has a drug issue or something going on. I’ve just never seen anything like this in my life. 

‘The guy wanted to take something out on the home instead of getting help. I don’t get it. I don’t get it at all why someone would go to this extreme ‘

The lawn was turned into a shade of brilliant blue while 30ft high palm tree was also doused in yellow, pink and blue paint making it look as though it had been transported from one of Florida’s nearly theme parks than a typical suburban street. 

The homeowners association are now suing Liebman who they say trashed the house, however the city say there is nothing that can be done because he no longer living in the home. 

Liebman is already facing drug charges, including smuggling contraband into a detention facility. 

The Collier County Code Enforcement Division is investigating and said violations exist on the house, but it won’t be taking action at this time.
