WALLPAPER

 

All wallpapers are hand-printed in St. Pauli, Hamburg.


Screen printing is a craftsmanship. The thick paint is a haptic experience. Small irregularities, different

surfaces and varying lines make every print unique.


The patterns are especially designed for this kind of hand-printing. They blend into each other in such a

way that no part equals another. „The unperfect perfection“.
I use only the highest quality water-based colours. The wallpapers are printed on off-white fleece material ,
75 cm ( 29,53 inches) in width.
All designs can be printed in the colours of your choice at an extra charge.
If you would like some colour samples or have other requirements don't hesitate to contact me.
The colours shown here are an approximate representation and should only be used as a guide.

INSPIRATION

 

I am a collector. I discover things in everyday life, nature and travels; and try to capture the aspects

which fascinate me. These collections are the starting point of my ideas. I transform them into rhythmic

patterns or compose them in limited editions prints on different materials.
The world is full of things which want to be captured.

 

 

TECHNIC

 

The direct contact with the material is important for me. I start by sketching the designs in pencil and

print them afterwards by hand. The thick paint is a haptic experience. Small irregularities, different

surfaces and varying lines make every print unique.
The imperfect perfection is the trait of the screen print.
The patterns are especially designed for this kind of hand-printing. They blend into each other in

such a way that no part equals another.

 

 

SCREENPRINTING?

 

The art of screen printing has been used for more than 3000 years. It has its origin in ancient China.

Around 1900 this approach was rediscovered. In the 1960s artists like Andy Warhol and Robert

Rauschenberg became famous for using this technique.
The screen normally consists of an aluminium frame which is covered on one side with a delicate fabric.

A stencil is embedded in the screen. The ink is then pressed through the screen using a squeegee;

a flexible blade in a stable holder.
