When artist Shanan Campanaro redecorated her Brooklyn apartment last year, she couldn't find the exact designs she wanted to put on her walls. So, digitally manipulating sections of her own watercolor paintings to create original wallpaper, Eskayel Bespoke Wallpaper was born. The Central St. Martin's grad digitally prints the highly personal and chromatic designs to maintain the intense color variation most often seen in hand-printed wall paper. The work brings together her strong backgrounds in fine art and graphic design, creating the perfect mix of authentic handmade art with cleaner, more poised interior graphics.
Inspired by her recent travels to Indonesia and Iceland, her latest design capsule "The Island Collection" reflects both of the diverse landscapes and climates. She based several pieces on her drawings of polar bears, in fact. Subtle yet also pop, the intricate details and colors of such designs as "Madagascar" and "Bear in Mind" make it easy to get lost. Each work of art is an easy way to makeover any room, either in pieces or as entire wall coverings.
The bespoke wallpaper begins at $15 per square foot, but each design also comes two feet-wide with an 11 foot drop for $350. To order or for a quote, contact Eskayel.
