Pattern and Decoration

Pattern Canvas for Richard Tucker

This project was completed as part of my A2 course for A Level Art and Design. I focused on pattern and decoration and developed the research to inspire designs for products to be used in an Indian Restaurant. The research was based around 4 different artists, designers, or cultures, 2 being from the West and 2 from the East, to represent the union that was behind the prevalence of Eastern cuisine in the West. The Western influence came from Georgia O’Keeffe and William Morris, and the Eastern influence was found in Mehndi designs and Mandela patterns. These were combined to produce the canvas.
