Noah Scalin Skull Wallpaper Featured on BoingBoing

Scalin Skullpaper

(Bill Gurstelle is guest blogging here on Boing Boing. He is the author of several books including Backyard Ballistics, and the recently published Absinthe and Flamethrowers. Twitter: @wmgurst)BoingBoing readers may already be familiar with artist Noah Scalin Skull-A-Day project from a previous post. I met Noah at the 2009 GEL conference in New York City and was immediately struck by his ability to so creatively render an idea in so many different media (vegetables, shoelaces, bed sheets, concrete construction barriers, and so on.)

In early July (July 3 to August 22 to be precise), a solo art show of his work in opens in Richmond, VA. It’s at the Quirk Gallery, 311 West Broad Street, Richmond, VA. He’ll be displaying his newly available Skull-a-Day wallpaper as well.

I was skimming through my Elle Decor the other day, and came across this great faux-tile wallpaper from Graham & Brown. I thought I would share it with you “commitmentphobe” & “serial renovators” out there. It is water and fade resistant, and they even claim it is easier to clean than most other wallpapers. It is not recommended instead of a shower surround, but would be great in a powder room or on an accent wall!
Below I have a few other great papers now available (not tile, just regular wallpaper)… The price is right and their collection is so diverse!
