Kathe Fraga’s French Wallpaper series are inspired by the mesmerizing motifs found on hand-painted walls inside grand old Parisian mansions. In addition to wallpapers and coverings, Fraga also draws inspiration from the patterns found on vintage kimonos, hand-worked embroidery, and hand-blocked wall panels.Each piece resembles an aged decorative fresco panel adorned with birds and flowers, vines and leaves in a modern Chinoiserie style.
She loves color and pattern and the faded look and romance of vintage imagery. Kathe Fraga’s paintings are acrylic on frescoed canvas, finished with lacquer a style that was popular in the 17th and 18th centuries.
