“The first Voutsa wallpaper patterns were inspired by cave paintings, mimicking the movements of the human form. I began on large scrolls of paper with nudes, then zoomed in on the body: hands, nipples, and ears. Transferring these paintings into digitally printed wallpapers presented a fresh combination of simplicity and chic.
"As Voutsa grows, it remains my desire to create wallpapers that ignite the eye and activate a room, generating fantasy through brush strokes, abstraction and bold coloration. My recent collection of flora, fauna, lips and jewelry continues this pattern, rendering fields of painterly imagery into suspended, isolated forms and collective populations dangling amidst solid planes of color.
"This year, Voutsa has debuted wallpaper at Maison et Objet, Paris, completed a clothing line in collaboration with Paul Marlow, and presented a line of homeware at Anthropologie."—G.V.
