Digitally Printed Wallpaper

Beautiful Digitally Printed wallpaper collection by Arthur Slenk,
produced in collacboration with NLXL - made from reworking old sheet music.

"Arthur Slenk (1941) found two boxes of handwritten music sheets over twenty years ago, used by an amateur orchestra between 1872 and 1941. The documents had not seen daylight in almost half a century. Carefully, he started examining page upon page, discovering the genesis, the varying pressure of pen upon paper, a corrected error, a tiny ink stain where the pen had stumbled over a fiber, fingerprints, signs of wear in the corner where the sheet was flipped over – all these traces suddenly shined a light upon the obscure members of this amateur orchestra. He then sorted the sheet music by subject into separate envelopes, and finally pasted. Each design was painstakingly subjected to critical examination, often followed by corrections. After seven years of work that produced 144 Letter-size designs, he considered this enormous task completed.
NLXL has selected 8 of these designs for a new wallpaper collection. The result is simply astonishing. New state-of-the art scanning techniques were developed to capture the depth of the paper clippings.
The vintage feel of the yellowed paper combined with the history behind the sheet music makes it look like a historical document on a wall.
Images of the new collection can be downloaded at The Arthur Slenk Collection will be presented in 2013 at all major fairs worldwide. Official premiere at ICFF New York, May 18-21, NLXL booth # 1325. Collection and catalogues in stock in April 2013. Samples for photoshoots available now.
