Artist Profiles

The remit for the artists was to create a wallpaper design that firstly reflected their own practice but also would test a range of materials and printing techniques. It was not necessary to design a traditional wallpaper composition ie. a repeat pattern, but it could involve more innovative approaches to surface design, pattern and materials. The finished wallpaper might include a range of materials or combine hand-drawn elements with photographic, vector, cut lines and embossed surfaces.
