Chequerboard, White

Regular price$ 235.00


This wallpaper epitomizes modern-day Arts and Crafts, combining a fragment of an African textile with a detail from a William Morris wall hanging. It represents the two cultures that have impacted Abi’s identity as a British artist of West African heritage. The chequerboard structure encourages the interplay of the two distinct cultures; they integrate with and inform one another whilst transporting us to Abi’s wonderful world of patterns.
