Marthe Armitage Wallpaper

May 30, 2012

I first found out about London-based artist Marthe Armitage a few years ago but when I saw her work in a hotel in London I nearly fell down. I love what she does and thought you might too. Here is a snap that I took with my iPhone to show it in-situ to whet your appetite, the rest I’ve combed from other sources on the web. Enjoy!

Marthe creates and hand prints her wallpapers using lino blocks in her Chiswick studio and now I’m wondering if this means I can eventually see it in person and watch her in action? I have to look this up to see if she even welcomes a studio tour. I find watching people doing their thing incredibly inspiring. Here are some of my favorite wallpaper patterns from her collection.

    The fine details on the ferns and alliums is incredible considering they are printed from Lino blocks

    Did you ever get to see her in person? There’s just been a section about her wallpapers on the BBC4 program Fabric of Britain. You might catch it on iPlayer if you’re interested.
