Cloudbusting Wallpaper

17The sublime, 21st century Cloudbusting wallpaper is British contemporary artist, Paris, and east London designer, Nosca Inc’s, debut collaboration for 17 Patterns. The dynamic pair introduce harmonious moods into your interior with a beautiful aesthetic of clouds forming over a metallic backdrop. Delivered in a swirling mist of grey, peach, blue and marsala, this alluring mica collection displays subtle textures and painting strokes that are organic yet constrained by the repeat of the pattern. Using unconventional techniques, the original painting was exposed to all of nature’s elements and weathered naturally in the English countryside to enhance movement and texture within the watercolours. The result is a truly sophisticated and opulent wallpaper.

ARTISTS _Paris started painting in 1987, but it was in 1994, when he relocated to the south of England, that he became instrumental in the renaissance of the Bristol graffiti scene. For 20 years, Paris’ hand-crafted letter forms and abstract painting style have been applauded globally. Synonymous with breaking new ground, his art attracts high profile commissions. In 2011/12, he was the artist-in-residence for British band, Coldplay, producing the artwork for their 5th album and international tour, Mylo Xyloto; he has also produced album artwork for the Rolling Stones, Robbie Williams, and Ed Sheeran, to name a few. Paris moved to Somerset in 2013 were he began exploring the local countryside and ancient forests. It was here that he started to experiment with watercolours; painting wild mushrooms and abstract interpretations of nature, and his epic graffiti fill-ins now enrich and inform the textures and shapes of his new more natural and sublime forms.
