Wall Covering Guru Goes Fine Art

Monday, April 15th, 2013

We're unabashed fans of Maya Romanoff's work, so we're excited to hear the high-end wall covering company is branching out into high art. The company's collaborative series Maya and the Artist will launch with an opening reception May 2 from 5-8PM at the Maya Romanoff showroom in Chicago. In this series, Maya Romanoff hands over hundreds of yards of handmade material to an artist, challenging him or her to create a new hybrid body of work that will then be displayed in a mini gallery exhibition in the flagship showroom. First up in the ongoing series is internationally acclaimed artist Tom Matucci, who incorporated pieces of Maya Romanoff’s famous surfacing materials into his signature aesthetic of textured, atmospheric figurative painting (pictured).
