Some people don’t exactly know what a surface pattern print is. The definition is not quite sedimented, yet.
My personal definition would be, and it is not very far from what it should be:
An art print of a Textile Design pattern. Some people love to collect design prints and value them as much as any other traditional art form.
I started designing surface patterns when my daughter, after completing her degree in fashion, decided she wanted to venture into this field with me by her side. We became partners in brushes and stylus.
One of the first designs that I thought would be appropriate to create goes way back into my childhood memories.
When I first visited a museum in São Paulo, I was very little. So little that I don’t remember which museum it was. I only remember it being very white and a bunch of paintings of colorful party flags. Volpi flags.
My inspiration for this one was Alfredo Volpi:
Alfredo Volpi was an Italian-Brazilian artist. He has been considered one of the most important painters of that country.
The prominent Brazilian Modernist is best known for the geometric style of his “little flags” paintings, inspired on decorative paper flags used in country folk feasts. His paintings of, mainly colonial, house facades are also very prestigious.
Volpi was a master colorist that brought great visual impact to his pictures. He is very popular and much appreciated by interior designers and critics.
I have admired Volpi for a long, long time. Couldn’t avoid a tribute in the form of a textile pattern.
