“Paisley Elephants” wallpaper in Israel

In April 2022 The Museum for Islamic Art in Jerusalem asked me to make some variations of my Paisley Elephants design for their forthcoming exhibition. Here is one of the new versions I made on April 28th, 2022. Here is a new version of the design in shades of green.

Here is a photo of the curator at the museum holding some samples of the “Paisley Elephants” wallpaper design.

Here is a photograph of a wall at the museum wallpapered with a large sample of the “Paisley Elephants” design by Patrick Moriarty. The version used was the ‘white and black’ version.

The curators and exhibition designers decided that the ‘white and black’ version had too much contrast. They asked me to recolor the design in colors that have been chosen for the decor of the museum for the 11-month duration of the exhibition. They also asked me to give the design more depth, so I added a layer of faded color, which sits behind the paisley pattern. It makes the design look more vintage. I’m glad it was approved by the museum. Adi Yair, one of the curators, wrote to me about the final version of the Paisley Elephants design. She wrote, “Thank you. It is perfect”.
