Due to the current lockdown in Toronto, this installation which was originally scheduled to open in January, has been postponed and will now open in May 2021.
This new whimsical wallpaper is a nod to the past, but a celebration of today. A bold sense of colour and pattern and scale, inspired by ‘40’s glamour, midcentury designs and folk art. The result is almost childlike and definitely playful, but still sophisticated. Pastel colours or black and white with lots of dots, stripes, simple shapes, botanicals and sometimes animals, play a role in Tania’s designs. Embracing original techniques, Tania J. favours hand-made creations over machine-made. Wallpaper is created in the old fashioned screen printing technique using sustainable paper, based on hand-painted designs.
