A CUT ABOVE

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Style Decorating -

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).
