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.Share: Twitter Facebook
