Up on the Wall
by Paola Pagano
Paola is an illustrator and pattern designer based in Milan, where she moved after spending most of her 20’s in NYC.
Her cultural DNA ranges from the Italian traditional majolica motifs, to the grace of Japanese prints, to the wacky New York style.
Paola’s work has depth, richness, and emotion within each print, her style is recognisable yet it has a wide range of expressions, based on strong palettes of colours and a naive touch. Her work is simple in some ways, yet so powerful and enchanting.
Up on the Wall is a window to some of the latest work made between 2018 and 2019.
