Rational Beauty

Dan Funderburgh

Dan Funderburgh sneaks dark humor into his hyper stylized wallpapers by combining traditional pattern motifs with contemporary urban experiences. His designs tell stories. The work appears pleasant from a distance and edgier upon closer inspection. In the wittily titled Elysian Fields (bottom image) he amuses us with Venus flytraps, bats and bones instead of a idyllic fantasy as the title would suggest.

Flavor Papers, a New Orleans/Brooklyn-based wall paper shop, carefully hand-screens his designs. They are indeed a work of art! Mr Funderburgh’s work can be found in the collection of the Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum and the Miami Museum of Art.
