Graffiti wallpaper

Last week I was lucky enough to be given a heads up about some graffiti wallpaper spotted in town. I happened to be passing by Gerry Keane on Talbot Street yesterday and I was able to check it out for myself.

This graffiti paper is designed by Muriva {based in Simonstone in the UK}. Entitled ‘Che Guevara’ it’s pretty self explanatory. The Che paper can be seen in a larger scale here. However, I do think this particular pattern is too obviously repetitive on a realistic scale.

To date, {off the top of my head} I haven’t heard of any graffiti wallpaper, and I’ve got to hand it to them – it’s a really good idea. I don’t know why I haven’t seen any before.
I really like the idea of this wallpaper, but maybe a version that has been toned down more to a more discrete scale. Paired with something soft, to give a strong juxtaposition between the two, I don’t see why it couldn’t be used as a feature for someone who isn’t afraid to try something out of the ordinary.
