I really love wallpaper, but I don’t know if I’ll ever have enough guts to commit to a pattern and paste it up in a room, let alone an accent wall. Luckily, I’ve come across some fabulous wallpaper-centric art that totally satisfies my craving for colorful patterns. Best of all, they’re all completely mobile and can move from wall to wall as your mood changes (like mine frequently does). No scary commitments here.  Enjoy!

{Wallpaper itself makes great framed art. The images above are from Marilyn Krehbiel’s Etsy shop where she sells vintage wallpaper for about $14 a yard.}

Sometimes an artist’s work literally takes my breath away.  Several months ago, I almost skimmed right past one of Laura Plageman’s photographs while browsing on Pinterest, but something about it caught my eye at the last second.  Something was just a little off.  A little bit uncomfortable.  My eyes and mind had to adjust to the subtle distortion of the photograph, and when they did I actually gasped.  I’ve been obsessed with Plageman’s Response series ever since.  Her mesmerizing images have inspired an entire week of altered landscapes over on curate1k.  Enjoy!

Craving the simplicity and strength of black and white, I searched high and low to put together a week’s worth of covetable pieces.  The illustrations above are by Thursday’s super talented artist, Tali Yalonetzki.  Browse more of her amazingly diverse work here and here.

Yes, I debated.  I truly did.  But in the end, I could not pass up the opportunity to do a Hunger Games-themed week in anticipation of the movie premiere this Friday.  Check back daily for pieces that remind me of Katniss, Peeta, and the crazy Capitol.  You know you want to.

{Feeling a little bit Katniss and a little bit Capitol?  Britt Bass’s arrows fit the bill.}

I’m abandoning the strict themes of the past few weeks and offering up a collection of colorful chaos over on curate1k.  Enjoy!

Yesterday, 20x200 released a limited edition print of Jennifer Sanchez’s mixed media piece, ny.11.#42, with the largest format going for $1200 a pop!  So my question is, who is going to be the super lucky person to buy the original ny.11.#42 on the Beholder for just $190?

(Am I missing something? And who’s got it up-side-down?)

More exquisite photography by today’s curate1k featured artist, Amy Friend.  She describes her process for this series, Daré alla Lucé, on her portfolio website:

Through small deliberate interventions, I altered these vintage images, allowing light to pass through them. (After all, photographs are made possible with light.) In a literal and somewhat playful manner, I aimed to give the photographs back to the light, hence the title of the series, Daré alla Lucé, an Italian phrase used to describe the moment of birth.

This week’s curate1k group is all about fluidity.  Each of the three featured artists has captured liquid movement in the most beautiful, captivating ways.  From the gentle suspension of a scarf in water to the artful manipulation of pools of diluted paint, the results are mesmerizing.

Last week on curate1k, I highlighted one of April Deacon’s painted photographs.  This week, as part of a collection of brightly colored floral pieces, I’ll be featuring one of her painted textiles.  You’ll find more above and in her Etsy shop, April Awakening.  Can you tell I’m in love?
