Inspiration: Saul Steinberg wallpaper!


Steinberg's Aviary print

Here it is used in the Soho Grand bathroom in New York!
Looks so great!

I'm beginning to work on some pattern samples and while researching found these totally inspiring wallpapers by Saul Steinberg. Five designs were originally printed in the 1940's and 1950s and have recently been reissued by Schumacher.
I love how squiggly, loose and dense they are. What a wonderful riot for a wall.
Here's a link to Saul Steinberg's page on Artsy.

Really great wallpaper. I appreciate you for this. You have very much talent. I like the way this artist uses colour in an Expressionistic style. Such art helps to develop creativity while giving children the chance to express themselves and their ideas.
