Known for their incredible chinoiserie wall murals, MISHA handcrafted is now showing a well done mix of both traditional textured raffia wallcovering with a modern flower. It reminds us here of many of the techniques now being utilized with No Voc Printing. There are now available digital printers that can print directly onto any textile using warer soluble inks and UV light to cure the designs, making it a non-voc product. At DesignerWallcoverings.com, the line from Black Inklings, showcases some of these techniques. Patterns will be shown shortly here at WallpaperWeekly.com of some beautiful primitive inkblot patterns.
New Banksy goes under the hammer
A brand new work by Banksy will be auctioned to raise money to help unemployed teenagers into work.
Go Flock Yourself, which shows a boy spray painting a flock pattern onto wallpaper, will raise funds for The Prince’s Trust.
The piece by the graffiti artist will sell alongside donated works by urban artists Goldie and Nick Walker.
The paintings will hang at Selfridges department store in London before the 26 February auction.
Money from the auction will be given to The Prince’s Trust, a charity which helps young people into training and jobs.
One of the artists whose work is to be auctioned was himself backed by the organisation when starting out.
Bristol graffiti artist Dicy said the charity “gave me the confidence and backing to start my own design business when no-one else would. Now I’m incredibly proud to give something back.”
The Prince’s Trust Success Collection runs alongside two other exhibitions of urban art for auction.
The first, ArtCore, will bring together art from clubs and raves from the days of acid house. The second, Urban Art, will feature more Banksy pieces alongside street artists like Nick Walker, Adam Neate and Guy Denning.
