Emma J Shipley is a British artist and designer who studied at the Royal College of Art, and has always had a love of nature and a fascination with mixing imagination and reality. She combines her love of nature with the joys of travel, to create her designs; which mix a sense of maximalism with grafitti and tattoo styling and anatomically detailed hand drawn artwork.
Emma’s designs always contain abstract detail, linking so many themes together and this new collection continues with its mix of uncharted lands of curious creatures inspired by myths and legends and wild animals like Gorilla, Elephant, Zebra, Lion and Giraffe. You really need to look closely at these wallpapers and fabrics, to see everything that is there and then when you take a step or two back, the patterns almost magically become more classic-like damask and trailing wallpaper designs. Add to this a dazzling palette of colours and the addition of metallic inks and this amazing new collection is every bit as wonderful and wild as the first.
The Wilderie collection, along with thousands of other wallpapers, is available at your local Brewers Decorator Centre.
