I have enjoyed designing wallpaper patterns for about 20 years. They began as a way to add a pleasing decorative element to my fine art pieces as well as a device to use in my large-scale modular street installations that would serve as a rhythmic break between grids of smaller posters and larger-scale images. As I became better at designing patterns my goal became to make a pleasing stand-alone image for each tile of the wallpaper grid, but also to make sure the repeating pattern worked well. I’m a big fan of early Art Deco which retained some of the curves of the Art Nouveau style but evolved it to be more simple and structured… it's from this era of Art Deco that this pattern takes its inspiration.
