Kiki Smith’s Maiden & Moonflower wallpaper was created for the exhibition, “Kiki Smith: Her Home” at the Museum Haus Esters in Krefeld, Germany in 2008. It depicts an evening scene of a woman standing beneath a tree bough inhabited by night creatures and surrounded by stars in six saturated and mature colorways. Smith hand-traced the design into the acetate used for producing the screens which invoke a 14th-century German woodcut pattern upon printing.

Studio Printworks was founded in 2004 and exemplifies the cross-over of visual artists into the design world. We are pleased to feature The Great Contemporary Artists Collection which includes wallpapers by Kiki Smith, Rob Wynne, Michele Oka Doner, Mark Fox, and The Hilton Brothers.
