September 2015 17 Patterns (stand G50), the British company producing wallpapers and companion fabrics working collaboratively with artists and street artists, illustrators and graphic designers,has been chosen to decorate the Restaurant at Decorex 2015.
The sublime and opulent Cloudbusting, in peach colourway, will adorn the walls of the Decorex Restaurant.
Cloudbusting is British contemporary artist, Paris, and east London designer, Nosca Inc’s, debut collaboration for 17 Patterns, with aesthetic clouds forming over a metallic backdrop.
Delivered in a swirling mist of grey, peach, blue and masala, this alluring mica collection displays subtle textures and painting strokes that are organic yet constrained by the repeat of the pattern to create a Rococo-style mirage.
Using unconventional and experimental techniques, the original watercolour was weathered naturally overnight under a full moon in the English countryside and then subjected to blanching sunlight, representing the fusion of colour with atmospheric changes and exposing the pigments to natural changes.
Paris is a contemporary artist with more than 20 years’ experience. Born and raised in North East England, his hand-crafted letter forms and abstract painting style are applauded globally and are synonymous with breaking new ground. 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. He holds a BA (Hons) degree in Surface Pattern and Textile Print.
