“Urban Butterfly” - Concept and Processes
My new, contemporary fabric design range, “Urban Butterfly” stems from a unique series of designs based on images of my post-graffiti artwork depicting distressed, worn and aged walls, urban butterfly art and my graphic floating ginkgo leaves. Being a little on the ‘funky’ side, “Urban Butterfly” has also been designed to inspire and celebrate this creative and original art form of present day urban graffiti and in doing so, capturing a modern, timeless and unique post-graffiti design aesthetic of our times.

The “Urban Butterfly” range comes in two color ways - one featuring bright red accents, the second featuring bright blue accents.

Using time-honored hand printing processes, white cotton fabrics were screen printed over the entire fabric length/s creating randomly printed and distressed, textured background imagery. Urban Butterfly images were over printed in a non formal half drop repeat mode in black pigment. Multiple layers of floating ginkgo leaves were over printed in a non formal half drop repeat mode in black and red or blue pigment giving a strong visual contrast to the monochromatic base layers.

The completed fabric design consisted of multiple complex layers of imagery featuring butterflies exploring their urban settings in our contemporary world.

The fabric and patterning in the “Urban Butterfly” range can be designed using variations of the above color ways and patterning techniques to create a truly unique and individual statement. “Urban Butterfly” fabric lengths and fat quarters can be used for wearable art, accessories, quilts, furnishing, as framed artworks and interior design projects.
