Pattern Rhythm: The Artwork of Wies Preijde

Imagine your home was wallpapered in the wildest array of mismatched stripes, and every time you entered it felt like a graphic designer’s fun house that danced with prism rhythm. This is the work of Dutch artist Wies Preijde. A recent graduate of the Textile Design Department at the Royal Academy of Art (aka The Hague), Preijde¬†specializes in textile design installations that truly defy imagination.

Not only does she conceive and create the textile patterns herself, she then constructs angular rooms covered in the varying pastel stripes and shapes. Inspired by architecture and everyday objects, her work creates a flat, holographic experience for the observer that feels like an illusion. If you squint your eyes, it feels like you’re looking at the coolest wallpaper ever rather than meticulously designed fiber walls. I don’t know if this is Preijde’s intention, but I’d paper a whole house in the stuff.
