A CUT ABOVE
British artist Nicholas Hughes has become known for his intriguing ‘inky drawings’ since graduating from the prestigious Chelsea School of Art in 2005. No longer do you need to go to the trouble of ordering a bespoke commission to get your hands on his extraordinary work, though – Hughes is bringing out his first collection of wallpaper designs. Huge squares of cut lino translate his world into an accessible product – ‘I wanted to make things you can live with, rather than collectors’ pieces,’ explains the artist. The two designs in Hughes’ new collection are covered with quirky, playful characters and expressive lines that are full of life (cargocollective. com/diddletron).
