To enable Nosca Inc’s creative thoughts to take flight, respected British graffiti artist Paris joins the flock to juxtapose textural featherings and paint drips against the regal beauty of Christina K’s visually stimulating composition. 17 Patterns’ Flamingo wallpaper is printed in the UK on ethically sourced fibrous paper which has been carefully selected to heighten the wallpaper’s textural characteristic and flamboyant artistry.
ARTISTS _ Christina K is a London based/Athens-born illustrator, textile designer, screen printer and film producer who works with a blend of traditional and digital techniques. The melange of influences which ignite the creative inspiration behind Christina K’s work have little common ground other than an obvious energy and a bias towards the hedonistic love of visual sensation. Her illustrations have been championed by international record labels, magazines, fashion houses and TV companies that have the openness to be visually stimulating.
British designer, Nosca Inc is based in east London and sits at the forefront of interior art direction. Nosca champions the curation of non-conformist artists whose ideals do not fit into the gallery or agency representation mould. His diverse (and often confidential) artist services are an underground entity endorsed purely by word-of-mouth referral. He has curated major London shows for renowned, subversive artists which have featured on national TV news. He crossed over into the world of interior design in 2010, providing design, art direction and installation advisory services for interior designers.
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.
