SMELL MY WALLPAPER
Scratch-n-Sniff Wallcoverings and Portraits in the Style of Boylesque by Michael Angelo
THE (FRUIT) COCKTAIL COLLECTION: scratch-n-sniff wallcoverings by Michael Angelo for Flavor Paper
A celebratory, playful, sexy collection created to ask the viewer to scratch at a surface and to take delight in a secret which lies beneath. Michael thinks about the complexity of surfaces and what lies beneath them. Using wallpaper - a surface covering - as a medium and adding an interactive element to it, Michael invites viewers to consider that interaction informs understanding.
“The (Fruit) Cocktail Collection” by Michael Angelo for Flavor Paper features Cherry Forever, Tutti Frutti, and B-A-N-A-N-A-S. Cherry Forever is included in the permanent collection at the Smithsonian Institution’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum.
