Cara Saven Wall Design has launched CS&Co, a new project that sees the local brand team up with three of its favourite Cape Town-based artists – Joh Del, Lucie de Moyencourt and Michael Chandler – on a new range of wallpapers.
Lucie de Moyencourt is known for her ink drawings and paintings of daily life in Cape Town and beyond, many of which narrate the ways in which people inhabit spaces, both natural and built. CS&Co draws on seven years’ worth of Lucie’s depictions of city life.
Artist, commercial illustrator and graphic designer Joh Del’s (Johan de Lange) infinitely detailed work brims with unexpected wonders and surprise. His signature palette of flat earthy hues that aptly celebrate South Africa’s abundance of natural beauty, from underwater life to indigenous flora, can now be seen across this range of CS&Co wallpaper.
Michael Chandler is well-known for his hand-painted ceramics and fine illustration work. As part of CS&Co, you’ll find Michael’s highly-detailed drawings of nature, history and Cape Town transformed into large-scale wallpaper applications.
